According to coach Stuart Baxter, Leonardo Castro and Dumisani Zuma are back in training and will return in the near future.

Castro was sidelined for months, so much so that Chiefs even allowed him to leave for Colombia to be with his family while recovering.

Like Castro, Zuma is also coming back from a long-term having spent five months on the sidelines with a knee injury.

However, the good news is that the two attackers have re-joined their Chiefs teammates at Naturena as they have recovered.

Baxter, however, said both Castro and Zuma still lack match fitness, understandably so, as they have not been competitive for months.

“Soon, I’ll be telling you it’s quicker to count the fit players than the injured players,” Baxter told SuperSport TV.

“I think the closest is Dumi (Zuma) and Leo Castro, they’re in full training but they’ve got to get themselves match fit, so we are waiting for them,” added Baxter.
