Khune and Mphela return to training

BY NATALI IVERSON - NOVEMBER 5, 2014

Kaizer Chiefs captain, Itumeleng Khune, will return to training with his team this week, after being sidelined for two months due to an ankle injury.

Khune confirmed on Tuesday, that he has not felt any pain since removing his moonboot last weekend.

"I had my first full training without a moonboot on my own on Sunday, I am much closer to my return and I even took a long walk without the moonboot on Sunday,” Khune said.

"I never felt any pain at all but I still have to follow the procedure because am still on a specified training methods.”

However, the goalkeeper is still under the supervision of Amakhosi physiotherapists.

Chief’s coach, Stuart Baxter, has said that he hopes that Khune as well as forward, Katlego Mphela, will both return from injury, for the game against the Mamelodi Sundowns on the 22nd of November.

Mphela underwent surgery in September, after he damaged a bone in his foot. He is expected to join Khune this week for “light training.”

Chiefs are facing AmaZulu in an ABSA Premier Soccer League (PSL) match at the Moses Mabhida stadium on Wednesday evening.
