Former Zimbabwe International Goalkeeper Tapuwa Kapini who turns out for Highlands is set to see a specialist today for a mild concussion he suffered during a midweek ABSA Premiership encounter against Bidvest, the Kick Off has reported.
The Goalkeeper collided with striker Seun Ledwaba a few minutes before the break but managed to return back to finish off the match.
Speaking to the magazine, Kapini acknowledged he wanted to be substituted.
“I asked to be taken out at half-time because I was dizzy and had no balance,” he tells KickOff.com.
“I wanted to be brave but I realised that this will not help after having been feeling dizzy. I then told the doctor that I am not feeling right and he then inserted a drip.
“Right now I am still a bit low and I am due to see a specialist in Northcliff who will do some other detailed procedures. The impact of that clash was really heavy and I am told my blood pressure had dropped because I was in shock. My right jaw was just feeling awkward.”, He added.
Kapini has been one of the ABSA Premiership top performers. He has played all matches of the club since the team gained promotion into the elite league 2 seasons ago. His availabity for the weekend league match against Mamelodi Sundowns hangs in the balance.
