Orlando Pirates coach Jose Riveiro has issued a crucial update on striker Zakhele Lepasa, but is uncertain of his availability for Friday’s Carling Knockout Cup Last 16 clash against Cape Town Spurs.

Lepasa was excused from the national team ahead of the trip to Cote d’Ivoire due to an injury.

The Spaniard refused to comment on what happened in the national team, but said that he trusts Broos’ decision to release Lepasa.

Riveiro is unsure if Lepasa will be available for Friday’s match, but says that he will look to have all of his dangermen available for the clash.

Zakhele Lepasa is a doubt for Orlando Pirates’ Carling Knockout Cup Last 16 clash against Cape Town Spurs on Friday.

The striker has been struggling with an injury, and it is unclear if he will be fit enough to play.
