Mamelodi Sundowns won against their local rivalry Supersport United in the Tshwane Derby on Saturday evening during a Nedbank opening Round of 32. A victory that came at the cost of Thapelo Morena’s horrendous injury that shocked fans.
Downs defeated Supersport through a 32nd-minute goal by Sibusiso Vilakazi.
The 26-year-old Morena got injured during the match while chasing the ball. On a tackle that didn’t land well on the ground, Morena’s foot was injured and seemingly got out of the join.

Meanwhile, Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane also expressed his sadness regarding the Randfontein born star Morena.
“I haven’t got the full update on him. Very sad, we need Thapelo for Champions League and I think the ankle came off, I don’t know but I think they managed to put it back. I’m not sure about that,” Mosimane told SuperSport TV.
Mamelodi Sundowns advised that Morena was ‘being attended to by the medical team’ and more updates will follow.
