Itumeleng Khune's contract with Kaizer Chiefs ends

In another story, Briefly News reported about Itu's future in the sports scene as his contract ends with Kaizer Chiefs.

It's unclear whether the team still wants to keep him on a contract beyond his playing days or let him go forever. There are also conversations that another team, Sekhukhune United, might want him on a playing contract.

But that will all be revealed in time. In the meantime, Khune is on suspension after he was caught under the influence of alcohol in training. He has also bagged a job as a sports analyst at the SABC.
