JOHANNESBURG – Clean sheets have been hard to come by so far this season for Itumeleng Khune, but the Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper says he’s never been in better shape.
The shot stopper has recently come under some heavy criticism regarding his weight, and on Thursday morning he admitted that this was also the cause to some of his injuries.
“I have been working extremely hard at the gym. I remember last season there was a game we played against Golden Arrows and I was criticised about my weight – there I was thinking it comes with age, the older you get, you know,” said a smiling Khune.
“But I realised I was even suffering from a lot of injuries because I was overweight. I needed to do something about it.
