Middendorp Gives Khune Injury Update

Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune is expected back in action sometime in August, although it looks likely that he will miss the club’s Absa Premiership opener against Highlands Park on Sunday.

Speaking to the media after the Carling Black Label Cup at the weekend, a clash in which Chiefs suffered a 2-0 defeat to rivals Orlando Pirates, coach Ernst Middendorp gave an update on Khune’s shoulder injury.

“We have been very clear‚ and the medical side confirmed it two days ago‚ that Itu will definitely be available for selection in August‚” the coach explained.

“We have to look now how far from the training side he is and where we can bring him into the area where he feels comfortable. We have to prepare. And this is a decision along with an experienced goalkeeper at this level‚ and in cooperation with goalkeeper coach Lee Baxter. We have to decide – will he be available in two weeks‚ three weeks? But definitely I’m quite sure it looks very good.”

Khune has been out injured since January and missed the Africa Cup of Nations as a result of his long layoff.

“I was very impressed with his outstanding contribution during our pre-season camp, on the field‚ off the field. And I’m very happy that he can be part of the team regularly soon,” Middendorp told journalists.
