Former Kaizer Chiefs player Junior Khanye in an attempt to revive his career after two years has resumed training.

Khanye has been out of competitive action for nearly two years, but has keep himself fit by playing for a local side in Daveyton.

“Yes, it’s true that I am training with Luso Africa,” Khanye tells our crew.

“I am trying to get my football career back.

Khanye, who started training with the third tier team this week, says he is excited about the opportunity presented to him by the Gauteng-based outfit.

“I have started training with Luso Africa. It’s a team that is doing well in the ABC Motsepe League. I’m very excited about it,” confirmed Khanye.

At the time, the 33-year-old was looking at joining ABC Motsepe League club Pretoria Callies, which had recently acquired the services of a former Mamelodi Sundowns star in Lerato Chabangu.

“Luso Africa is a good team and the guys were happy to see me joining them in training. There are a few other guys in the team, who have played in the PSL in the past. I am working on getting a 100% fit and looking forward to playing. I don’t like to talk too much about myself on what I can still do on the soccer field. I like it when it is the other people who do that after they have seen me play so that you can hear it from them,” added Khanye.

Khanye says he has received encouragement from former Chiefs and Orlando Pirates star, Jabu Mahlangu, who has supported his attempts in making a comeback to football.

“I am looking forward to playing for the team. I am lucky to be having people like ‘Shuffle’ (Jabu Mahlangu), who have been encouraging me to play football again as I can still play. That guy (Mahlangu) has been encouraging me a lot,” concluded Khanye.

He was also previously on the books of Malanti Chiefs in Swaziland, Platinum Stars and Maritzburg United.
