Ajax Cape Town’s attacking midfielder Toriq Losper, who has not played for a year because of injury, is back in training and on the cusp of a much-awaited comeback.
The busy midfielder suffered a serious injury last October after just two rounds of the last Absa Premiership season and has not seen any action for more than a year.
He suffered a severe tear of his meniscus in his knee for the second time in his career with surgeons having to stitch it back together to save it in a complicated procedure that left Losper in a knee brace for months.
He was injured on the training ground at Ajax, after which the club sought to re-surface their training ground after several players were hurt by the uneven grass
Lopser came back to training in April, with rehabilitation proving slow. But having conjured four assists in two MultiChoice Diski Challenge games, Losper teed up two more in a 3-2 friendly win over Ubuntu at Ikamva on Wednesday and could well be in the squad for the trip to Bethlehem on October 18 when Ajax play their next Absa Premiership match at Free State Stars.
