In an interview with Lesedi FM on Wednesday morning, Kujane further said the team doctor would continue assessing the shot-stopper.

“He is currently in camp, the specialist he saw says the injury is not that serious, and he will be okay in the next couple of days,” said Kujane.

“But as you know Khune, he insists that he is okay, and he wants to play.”
