Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has revealed that he is match-fit but "other challenges" have kept him from making his comeback from an injury.
The 32-year-old Khune has not played since limping off injured early in the match against Baroka FC on 28 September.
Amakhosi announced on the website last month that Khune has recovered and is "fully fit" but the shot-stopper has still not been on the field of play.
Daniel Akpeyi has been doing a fine job between the sticks as Amakhosi have maintained their top spot in the PSL standings while Bruce Bvuma has also been standing in.
Khune disclosed on East Coast Radio: "I just want to say that the club released the statement two weeks ago declaring that I am match-fit but again there were challenges I needed to overcome, and I cannot really disclose those challenges.
"But I have been training with the team. I have been slowly getting back into the mix.
"I have to give credit to Akpeyi, Bruce Bvuma, Brylon Petersen and goalkeeper coach Lee Baxter for having done well in my absence."
Khune did, however, say that he is finding it tough to sit out on the sidelines.
He continued: "But with the technical team and the best medical team we have in the country they were able to make sure I come back on the field in a month and two weeks.
"Since then I have been battling with other challenges which I cannot disclose. It's because people are going to quote me on that next time, I am out injured."
