Motaung said the club would wait for the national team to return from Senegal to find out from the Bafana medical on why Khune was allowed to play with a mask.

“They (Bafana Bafana medical team) will give us a detailed report at the conclusion of the camp to explain to us how they used him‚” Motaung told TimesLive.

“He (Khune) should have played after the necessary medical clearance but we will go through the report and take it from there.”

Amakhosi’s next assignment is against Bidvest Wits in the Telkom Knockout semi-final on Saturday.

Khune is likely to play in this match if he is declared fit.
