Kaizer Chief suspends Itu Khune for showing up at training drunk

Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune gets punished for pitching at the training in a drunken state.

The club suspended the goal player and stripped him of the captaincy armband for showing signs of someone under the influence of alcohol.

Kaizer Chief released a statement about the situation after Itu got tested and the result came out positive.

“At the conclusion of the club’s rigorous disciplinary processes last week, the committee has taken stern action and decided that Itumeleng Khune should be temporarily separated from the team until certain conditions have been fulfilled. As a club that upholds the highest levels of professionalism in which discipline forms a key component, Kaizer Chiefs initiated an internal investigation after certain incidents involving Khune came to our attention.”

“During his absence, Khune will be expected to attend and actively participate in certain programmes designed to support his personal growth and development with support from the club,” the statement read.

“As Kaizer Chiefs, we believe in applying corrective measures to achieve personal growth and we are committed to providing the necessary support to Itumeleng during this period. Once he has completed the required programmes and met the set expectations, he will be welcomed back into the team.”

“We appreciate the unwavering support of our loyal supporters and encourage them to stand together with us as we navigate through this challenging phase,” read the statement.
