Elvis Chipezeze back in action

By ZBC Reporter
WARRIORS and South African top-flight league side Baroka United goalkeeper, Elvis Chipezeze has resumed training after suffering a neck injury at the weekend.
It was a huge scare after Warriors’ goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze was taken off the pitch on a stretcher following a neck injury in Baroka’s 2-1 victory over Maritzburg United in an ABSA Premiership encounter at the weekend.
Chipezeze, who was taken off in the 58th minute strapped with a neck guard and an oxygen mask landed awkwardly sprained his neck in the process.
The Warriors number one is however back at training and hinted through a video posted on Baroka’s official Twitter handle that he could be available for selection this weekend.
“I want to thank all the Baroka family for the support they give me week in week out, it really gives us the strength to carry on. My neck injury is not that serious and I have already resumed training although it’s light but if all goes well I might be available at the weekend,” he said
Chipezeze was named captain this season after a series of splendid performances at Baroka. He has been named man of the match on several occasions, something that many goalkeepers have never achieved.
Back home, Chipezeze is the Warriors’ first choice having kept goal for the national team in their recent international assignments.
