London, September 18, 2018 (AltAfrica)-Montpelier and South Africa midfielder Keagan Dolly has undergone successful surgery on his fractured fibula.
The 25-year-old is set to be out for several weeks and could miss Bafana Bafana’s upcoming 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
South Africa have back-to-back fixtures against Seychelles in October and Nigeria in November.
He picked up the injury after just five minutes of Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Strasbourg in the French league.
Dolly collided with Strasbourg’s Jeremy Grimm and underwent surgery on Monday.
“Keagan Dolly had a successful surgery yesterday (Monday). We wish him a speedy recovery,” Montpellier announced on Twitter.
The Bafana Bafana international moved from 2016 African Champions Mamelodi Sundowns to French side Montpelier in January 2017 for a fee of around $2 million, making it one of the most expensive transfers in South African history.
