Orlando Pirates secured a commanding victory in the Premiership clash against Royal AM on Sunday, but the triumph was marred by an unfortunate injury to Thabiso Lebitso. The Buccaneers emerged victorious with a resounding 4-0 win, yet Lebitso’s early exit due to injury cast a shadow over their success as it was revealed that he sustained a collarbone fracture.

The 28-year-old right-back’s injury occurred just 17 minutes into the game, prompting his substitution by Thabiso Moyane.

Following the match, Orlando Pirates provided an update on Lebitso’s condition, confirming the severity of his injury and the need for surgical intervention.

“In the wake of Orlando Pirates celebrating a resounding 4-0 victory over Royal AM in a pivotal DStv Premiership fixture on Sunday afternoon, the Buccaneers encountered a significant setback with Thabiso Lebitso’s injury,” stated the Bucs’ medical team on Orlandopiratesfc.com.

“The 28-year-old right-back has suffered a broken collarbone, necessitating surgery. The prognosis for the duration of Lebitso’s absence will be determined following his surgery.”

The loss of Lebitso presents a challenge for Orlando Pirates as they navigate the latter stages of the Premiership campaign.

His absence from the squad will be keenly felt, given his contributions to the team’s defensive stability and attacking prowess throughout the season.

The club’s medical staff will monitor Lebitso’s recovery closely, with the hope of a swift and successful rehabilitation process.

However, his absence will undoubtedly be felt on the field, underscoring the importance of squad depth and resilience as Orlando Pirates strive to maintain their momentum and pursue their objectives in the Premiership.
