Banyana Banyana captain, Janine van Wyk indicates that she will make a strong comeback in a heartfelt message to her fans after suffering another knee injury.
The gutted national team player who is currently in Scotland playing for Glasgow City, took to her Twitter account (@Janinevanwyk5) to share the news.
“Absolutely devastated to announce that I’ll be out of action for a while after suffering another knee injury,” she revealed.
“This really couldn’t have come at a worse time with the start of the season only just around the corner.”
The 33-year-old joined Glasgow in July 2020 and was looking forward to making her mark for her club.
“I have worked extremely hard to rebuild my strength and confidence to play my best football again.
“This game we love so much can bring so much joy and excitement to our hearts and on the flip side it can completely destroy you deep within.”
The road to recovery is now in full swing as van Wyk will be eager to get back on the playing field.
“It’s going to be very difficult to overcome yet another setback so soon after my previous injury.
“Injuries are however part of the game and it’s definitely a challenge that will test my character, that’s for sure.
“I’m honestly gutted that I’ll miss the first couple of games with my team Glasgow City and get to play in a league I looked forward to eagerly play in.
“BUT, I will be back…SOON,” she ended.
