Kaizer Chiefs (Amakhosi) have confirmed that goal Keeper Itumeleng Khune has been cleared by the hospital after falling on his head against Golden Arrows over the weekend.

He was in agonising pain when stretchered off the pitch in Saturday night, towards the end of the Absa Premiership encounter.

The Chiefs skipper, who’s in epic form, sustained a neck muscle spasm after colliding with Arrows’ Knox Mutizwa.

“Khune fell heavily on his head,” comments Dr Hashendra Ramjee about the stoppage time incident, quoted from the clubs website.

“He had a sore neck and a headache from the clash. We took him to hospital where he was examined. Accordingly, he was cleared of danger.”

Khune adds to a long injury list currently affecting the Amakhosi camp.

“Itu will undergo a series of checks and rehabilitation,” adds Dr Ramjee. “However, he should be ready for the next match.”

Chiefs will play at home-away-from-home Baroka FC at Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday. The much anticipated clash will be kick-off at (6pm)
