Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has admitted his frustration after once again being consigned to the treatment table with a back injury.

The 29-year-old is currently ruled out for Amakhosi's next Premiership clash, with Bloemfontein Celtic at FNB Stadium next Wednesday.

The Bafana Bafana international has had an injury ravaged three seasons and has made just 36 league appearances since the start of 2014/15. 

Khune picked up his current injury concern during the 1-1 draw with Cape Town City on November 29, and subsequently coach Steve Komphela has confirmed he will be out against Phunya Sele Sele.

As such, the Glamour Boys number one has expressed his frustration at being ruled out once more.

"What I hate about football is injuries. I hope soon I will be back to work? I'm frustrated," he said on his official Twitter account.

It's unclear at this stage how long the Ventersdorp-born star will remain unavailable for selection as Chiefs' medical team are yet to make an announcement on his injury status.
