Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed that they have not received any formal request for their captain and goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune to train with VfB Stuttgart.

The Bundesliga club is currently in South Africa, and their executive Fredi Bobic revealed that they would like to give Khune a chance to train with them following a request from his agent.  

“We have only read about it in the media and nothing more,” Maphosa told Goal. “It is Khune’s camp that came up with the story, and we (Kaizer Chiefs) haven’t been informed of such an arrangement,” he said.

Maphosa added that the club cannot be excited about something that they know little about, and that they will only entertain it if they receive a formal request from either Stuttgart or Khune’s agency.

“We are a professional club and therefore cannot be excited and entertain such reports unless a formal letter is submitted to us for Khune to train or have a trial with anyone.

“So, for now the club has given Khune and other players the permission to be with Bafana Bafana ahead of Chan and nothing else,” concluded Maphosa.
