Itumeleng Khune replaced Nigerian international Daniel Akpeyi after he was red carded against Wydad Casablanca on Saturday. Amakhosi eventually ran out 1-0 winners despite being down to 9-men after striker Samir Nurkovic also saw red.

Daniel Akpeyi will now not be available for their crunch fixture against Horoya FC in their penultimate CAF Champions League group game. Only a win will see Chiefs qualify to the knockout stages.

After the game Gavin Hunt was asked whether he will play Itumeleng Khune in the DSTV Premiership against Stellenbosch FC this afternoon.

“I’ll think about that in the next day or two. I mean, he’s had a hell of a time in his life, you know, with what’s happened,” Hunt told the media.

“But he’s one who, I can see he’s coming back mentally.

“I always felt Itu’s problem – and I’ve said it to him, I don’t hide it – is that I think he fell out of love with the game. You know, you’ve got to love the game.

“And sometimes it happens in football careers, and sometimes you need a jolt. And what’s happened to him off the field is tragic.

“Maybe I’ve seen a certain something that’s coming back. Mentally and love for the game.

“You’ve got to go to training every day and love it. We’ve spoken about it, we speak about it.”
