Kaizer Chiefs Captain Itumeleng Khune’s place could be under threat as Coach Gavin Hunt revealed the return of Daniel Akpeyi.

The 33 year old Khune has played as second choice to Akpeyi under Coach Ernst Middendorp until the Nigerian goalkeeper suffered an injury in the 2019/20 season.

The Nigerian international has since recovered and is expected to be among Hunt’s first eleven as they clash with Chippa United.

The news came after Itumeleng Khune was heavily criticised for his underwhelming performance against Mamelodi Sundowns when Amakhosi were beaten 3 – nil over the weekend.
