Itumeleng Khune rejoins Kaizer Chiefs’ team as his suspension ends


Itu Khune is back

Kaizer Chiefs announces Itumeleng Khune’s return from suspension which started in early December 2023.

The veteran goalkeeper is back on the soccer team following his suspension which was caused by him allegedly arriving at a training session under the influence of alcohol. Itumeleng Khune was stripped of his captaincy title.

“Kaizer Chiefs’ longest serving player, Itumeleng Khune, has rejoined the team following his separation from his teammates to fulfill certain conditions required of him before he could be allowed back at the Village,” read a statement on the Chiefs website.

“Khune was suspended early in December to afford him an opportunity to complete a corrective programme designed for him to meet set expectations for a professional athlete,” the statement added.

“Upon completion of the programme, a report from an independent body of professionals was received and shared with the technical team to demonstrate that he had done all that was required,” the statement continued.
