Khune Discusses De Gea And Chiefs' Return To Football

The 2019/20 Absa Premiership campaign will resume action on August 11 and Itumeleng Khune is eager for Kaizer Chiefs to continue where they’ve left off in the league.

Amakhosi will utilise the Orlando Stadium as their home ground for the remaining fixtures of the 2019/20 season, which is set to be completed before the end of August.

However, it’s just been a month since PSL teams have returned to club returning following a three-month hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdown restrictions.

“It’s important for us to continue where we left off, luckily, we have new technology, like the Zoom mobile app, via which we could have video communication,” Khune said on Amakhosi’s official website.

“This helped the coaches to guide us on exercises to keep fit. It was a frustrating time, as we missed being on the field. We just had to hang in there. We are happy that we will soon be able to do what we all love again – playing football. 

“I realise that the break, due to this Covid-19 pandemic, affected a lot of keepers, including Manchester United’s David de Gea and Leicester City’s Kasper Schmeichel. They didn’t seem to have the same confidence as before the break. There was clearly a lot of rustiness.

“Luckily, we have had a bit more time to prepare before the league restarts. We have also discussed various aspects on our ‘Keeper Corner’, which is us goalies communicating with our goalkeeper coach Lee Baxter. It’s basically about learning from the past to go forward. 

“Going back into the field will all be about mental strength… We just need to be ready come 11 August,” he added.
