Khune Glad To Be Back

Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper and captain, Itumeleng Khune, has expressed his relief at returning to first team action for the club.

The 26-year-old was out of action for a prolonged spell with an ankle injury, however he made his return in Chiefs' recent 1-0 defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns. 

Khune has been in some excellent form in 2013/14, and his availability is expected to be a boost for the team as a whole.

The player spoke of his relief at returning to action to the club's official website.

He said, "It has been an upsetting moment in my career to be sidelined by injury for a full month. It is all good to be back in the mix of playing. I missed the training sessions and the action of defending our league title. It was both sad and good to have a perspective from the sidelines. I am just glad that I am back to contribute to our successful defending of our league title."

He added the team were primed and ready for this evening's PSL clash against Black Aces, "Yes, that's another big game. They are a good team. They have a good squad. Aces have quality players and their coach has been there. Clive Barker is a tried and tested coach. We are looking forward to the game. The fans must continue to come in their numbers at FNB Stadium. It always gives us an edge over the visiting teams when the supporters are present and cheering us at the stadium."

Tonight's clash gets underway from 19h30 at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.
