Kaizer Chief’s Itumeleng Khune didn’t have a blast in 2019. He won’t be looking back fondly and there are no doubts that he is hoping for a better year once this month comes to an end. Chiefs player had appeared in only two games over the course of the entire calendar year. This will be officially the worst year in Khune’s career since his Amakhosi debut. If we consider that it was another year of the club’s trophy drought, it only makes things worse for him. Read more on soccer 10 today;
Itumeleng Khune suffered two serious injuries
Khune suffered a shoulder injury which required surgery. After that surgery, he was unable to appear in the 2018/2019 Absa Premiership campaign. That took a big hit on his form, making him miss the most important part of the training as well. Not long after, he dealt another blow after his comeback in September. The 32-year-old player picked a groin injury in the middle of the game played against Baroka F.C.
For now, there is a small chance that this shot-stopper will feature in the final game against Maritzburg United. It is very likely that he will finish the year with just 118 minutes to his name in all of the competitions. Of course, he will also miss a piece of silverware in his trophy cabinet. Now, he can only hope for a better year.
He could have a much better year in 2020 as Chiefs will still be on course to lift the title in the year of their 50th anniversary. Khune will have time to get back in training and get into his old form again to be fit for the match. However, for now, everything remains up to Ernst Middendorp and his medical team who will decide when can he get back on the field again. Before next match, get ready with betway prediction.
