KUNGFU PANDA RECOVERS

HIGHLANDERS midfielder Calvin “Kungfu Panda” Chigonero has recovered from a knee injury and is ready to help the team in the second half of the Premiership season.

The 22-year-old introduced himself to the Bosso faithful with a brace, after coming in as a substitute, when the team won 2-0 against Yadah at National Sports Stadium.

He injured his knee, after a collision with a CAPS United defender, in Bosso’s 2-1 victory at Barbourfields.

“I have missed a couple of weeks with a knee injury but it was very important for me that I don’t rush my recovery and make sure that I return 100 percent fit,” said Chigonero.

“I am now available for selection and it will not be easy coming to a team that has been winning for fun lately.” He joined the club on loan from Talen Vision where he was one of the top players in the team that finished fourth in the Southern Region Division One League under coach Lizwe Sweswe.

Bosso sit on top of the table after 17 matches.

They have managed to score 15 goals, the fewest among the clubs in the top nine, and Panda will be hoping that his goal-scoring abilities will help the team to boost their attack.

The table toppers travel to Kariba for a tricky battle against Luke Masomere’s resurgent side at Nyamhunga.
