Ovidy Karuru out of Bafana Bafana clash

Warriors vice captain Ovidy Karuru has excused himself from the Warriors squad set to battle in this week’s World Cup qualifiers so that he could focus on his on-going search for a club.

The 32-year old is currently unattached, having parted ways with relegated Limpopo based side Black Leopards at the end of the 2020/21 DStv Premiership season.

He was named in the squad but will not come, as he asked to be excused, a development confirmed by Team Manager Wellington Mpandare.

Head coach Zdravko Logarusic is most likely going into battle with a depleted Warriors side.

After the crisis of England-based players, who were barred by their respective clubs citing Covid-19 imposed travelling restrictions, the availability of United States-based defender Teenage Hadebe is now hanging in the balance.

Hadebe’s Major League Soccer (MLS) side Houston Dynamo have a league game during the international break, and are said to be considering not releasing the gangly defender.
