Cape Town - Rowen Fernandez admits that it was a wise decision for Kaizer Chiefs to re-sign Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune. 

The 'keeper played hard ball during contract negotiations after the 2014/15 season after his contract at the Sowetan giants expired at the end of June.

On Thursday Sport24 reported that the Amakhosi confirmed that they have agreed a deal in principle to bring the 28-year-old shot-stopper back to Naturena.

“I think Khune’s return to Chiefs is good for both parties and I’m glad they reached that decision at the end of the day,” Fernandez told Sport24.

“To me it looked like Chiefs knew what they were doing as they were still covered in the goalkeeping department, but in the end everyone will be happy as I believe it was a situation where Chiefs needed the services of Khune and the goalkeeper also needed Chiefs.”

Fernandez, who also played for Chiefs, believes it will also be good for Bafana Bafana to have Khune back at a club and playing.

“Indeed, the decision is good for everyone including the national team as it was going to be worrying for the national team coach to have his first choice goalkeeper club-less,” added Fernandez.
