Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune, has admitted his determination to return to both full health and his best form after recent illness.
The local soccer fraternity was taken by surprise when news broke that the keeper was taken to hospital with an undisclosed chest infection, however, he has since been released and is reportedly on the road to recovery.
The 30-year-old has not featured for the Glamour Boys in the Premiership in 2017/18, as a result of his health issues, although he could be set to return in the near future.
With that said, the experienced number one will miss the national team's crucial World Cup qualifying games against Cape Verde in early September.
Nonetheless, the Ventersdorp-born star has promised to bounce back from his current adversity. He said on his official Twitter account, "Life often tests your ability to adapt. When the going gets tough and you feel out of your comfort zone, keep going. You're about to level up."
Chiefs next face a trip to the in-form Cape Town City in a Absa Premiership clash at the Cape Town Stadium on September 13.
Kick off is at 19:30.
