Ben Motshwari is officially healthy again. The Orlando Pirates took to social media to share the good news with South Africans.
The post read:
"Orlando Pirates is pleased to announce that Ben Motshwari has fully recovered from Covid-19."
Take a look at the post below:
In a statement on their website, the Bucs revealed Motshwari had tested negative twice for the coronavirus after managing to beat it.
The statement read:
"Motshwari has performed, as per the health guidelines protocols, two separate tests which have both come back negative. He will therefore no longer be subjected to home isolation and can resume light training."
Motshwari has thanked Mzansi for their support:
"I would like to thank everybody for the words of support during my time off. It wasn’t easy but the words of encouragement that I received is what kept me going. So, thank you all, I really appreciate it.”
The 29-year-old revealed he was completely shocked when he found out he had contracted Covid-19. Briefly.co.za reported last month that Motshwari had been placed in isolation at this home after a test confirmed he had the coronavirus.
South Africans were happy to hear the midfielder had recovered fully.
Twitter user, @Cde_Xolani, commented:
"Great news. Welcome back Buccaneer."
