Kaizer Chiefs’ Itumeleng Khune says that he will be fine for Saturday’s encounter as the medical team at Bafana Bafana is taking good care of his shoulder injury.
The South African national team are currently in camp where they are gearing up for Saturday’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying encounter against Burkina Faso at the FNB Stadium.
Head Coach Stuart Baxter was without the services of the Chiefs’ shot-stopper in the country’s two previous encounters where Bafana suffered back-to-back losses against Cape Verde.
However, the 30-year-old has since returned to the squad and despite currently still nursing an injury to his shoulder, Khune is positive that he will be fine for Bafana’s must-win encounter on Saturday, October 07.
“I will be fine for the match, it’s a very important game for all of us and we need all the players fit to go compete and make the country proud. I am struggling with my shoulder but the medical teams from my club and Bafana Bafana are taking good care of it and I am feeling much better,” Khune told the South African Football Association’s official website.
