Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs physiotherapist David Milner confirmed that Itumeleng Khune is set to undergo surgery on his injured knee.

According to Kaizer Chiefs official website, Milner confirmed that Khune will go under the knife on where doctors will be hoping to repair his torn meniscus.

“Itumeleng Khune re-injured his knee during training last week,” said Milner.

The goalkeeper will undergo surgery on his torn meniscus on Friday, November 13.

As a result of the injury, Khune was withdrawn from the Bafana Bafana squad that will face Angola in two FIFA World Cup qualifying encounters.

Milner also revealed that David Zulu is nearing his return to the Amakhosi fold as he started light training.

“David Zulu has started running and is doing some jumps,” said Milner.

“He is progressing well and should be back to full training in December.”
