Itumeleng Khune (Gallo)

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs general manager Bobby Motaung has confirmed Itumeleng Khune is back in training, but that the goalkeeper is still some way off from a full return.

The Amakhosi shot stopper returned from international duty with Bafana Bafana with a bout of pneumonia and was immediately put on medication.

However, the Chiefs number-one is back in light training, and Motaung admits the medical staff are pleased with his recovery.

"Itu (Khune) has started doing light training and we are happy with his progress," Motaung told The Sowetan.

"He started complaining of back pains and sore feet after returning with Bafana Bafana from Niger (during a 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier). After tests were done it was discovered that he was suffering from pneumonia and he was immediately put on medication.

"I think Itu will only be back in action after two to three weeks."

The 24-year-old is now set to miss the PSL encounters against Santos and SuperSport United, but should be fit to return against Mamelodi Sundowns on December 4.
