Cape Town - Kaizer
Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune is in hospital with a chest
infection and will not play in Wednesday's Absa Premiership clash with
The 30-year-old Bafana Bafana international reportedly missed the
Glamour Boys' last match due to the same issue with illness, yet, it
seems the infection has gotten worse causing the hospitalisation.
It appears Khune will now also be in doubt for Bafana when they face
Cape Verde in two crucial upcoming 2018 Soccer World Cup qualifiers in September,
meaning coach Stuart Baxter may have to call up a replacement.
Meanwhile, the 'keeper's former team-mate, George Lebese, wished the
Ventersdorp-born star well as he continues his recovery.
The winger said
on Instagram, "Get well soon, brother."
In addition, Orlando Pirates
'keeper, Jackson Mabokgwane, added, "Get well soon my friend."
Brilliant Khuzwayo appears set to start in goal once more just as he
did in the 1-1 draw against Bloemfontein Celtic, with either Brylon
Peterson or Bruce Bvuma expected to deputise.
