Chiefs Boost As Captain Returns To Training
Itumeleng Khune Could Return For Kaizer Chiefs This Week
Steve Komphela has been given a welcome boost with the news that Itumeleng Khune could be fit enough to return to action after he returned to full training.
The 30-year-old hasn’t played for Chiefs since the 1-0 defeat to SuperSport United last month, with a nasty chest infection ruling him out for both club and country of late.
Khune missed the two World Cup qualifiers for Bafana Bafana against Cape Verde as well as domestic encounters with Bloemfontein Celtic and SuperSport, however, may be back in the squad when the Amakhosi come up against Cape Town City on Wednesday.
Chiefs have one win in their last 10 games in all competitions and are off to a very rocky start in 2017/18, although Komphela will no doubt be hoping that the return of their skipper could kickstart a turnaround in their fortunes.
Despite returning to full training, it remains to be seen whether Khune will be reinstated to the team straight away, although it is believed that he is now fit to return should Komphela want to use him.
