Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune underwent a successful surgery on Friday, the club said on their website.

The Amakhosi skipper underwent an operation on his groin and he is likely to make a comeback in the second half of the season. This follows yet another injury sustained while playing for Bafana against Niger and he has not kicked a ball in six weeks.

“The doctors were satisfied with the operation on Itu. He will spend the next 10 days at home before starting with his rehabilitation,” team physiotherapist Dave Milner told on Tuesday morning.

Khune is expected to complete his rehabilitation in eight weeks’ time. Meanwhile, veteran goalkeeper Arthur Bartman will continue as cover in goals with Tinashe Nengomasha captaining the team.
