AmaZulu’s George Maluleka “stable and recovering well” after collapse

AmaZulu midfielder George Maluleka has spoken out following his collapse on the pitch during injury time in a match against Moroka Swallows, saying he is “stable and recovering well”. The incident occurred late in the game at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday, with medics from both teams quickly responding to the emergency.

Maluleka was motionless on the floor before a defibrillator was rushed onto the pitch. The quick response from medical teams stabilized him and he was breathing and moving when taken off the field by ambulance. Maluleka had previously collapsed during a game against Sekhukhune United in January but had continued to play after being treated by medicals.

Club confirms Maluleka’s condition

The midfielder was later confirmed to be “ok” by club officials and was not taken to hospital after tests were conducted. A statement from the club confirmed that Maluleka was discharged after tests were carried out by their medical team. Maluleka himself thanked his supporters for their care and concern, adding that he is “stable and recovering well in the good care of my family”.

A repeat of the incident earlier this season

This is the second time that Maluleka has collapsed during a match this season. In January, he also collapsed during a match against Sekhukhune United, but was able to continue playing after being treated by medicals. The incident has raised concerns over the midfielder’s health and his ability to continue playing at the highest level.

While the quick response from medical teams and the fact that Maluleka is “stable and recovering well” is positive news, concerns will remain over his health and his ability to continue playing. The incident highlights the importance of having trained medical personnel and the necessary equipment at football matches to respond to emergencies.
