South Africa-based Malawian forward Frank ‘Paladino’ Mhango will be out of action for two weeks following the groin strain injury he sustained in Orlando Pirates encounter against Stellenbosch.
Malawi national team coach Meke Mwase said the wonder-boy will face a brief spell on the side-lines.
“I will have a picture until an assessment by medical staff is made,” said Mwase.
He said Mhango is still in his plans for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Burkina Faso on November 12 away and November 18 at home.
Mwase backed the Malawian international to make a quick return from his injury and recapture the scoring form.
The striker will continue to undergo rehabilitation as the medical team tries to get him ready for return to action.
Mwase admits the 28-year-old is a vital part of his setup, he is confident that he may have a fallback plan.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
