“Khune has been cleared to play against Free State Stars,” Maphosa told Goal.
Meanwhile, Maphosa also confirmed that Chiefs will not be contesting Josta Dladla’s red card although it is within the club’s right to have the red card rescinded after the replay showed that Dladla was incorrectly shown yellow during the Polokwane City game.
“The club will not be taking any actions towards getting the red card overturned,” said Maphosa.
