Weekend Witness - - Classifieds -

FOR­MER Mar­itzburg United mid­fielder Ju­nior Khanye says he is ready to bounce back into foot­ball in Jan­uary, af­ter turn­ing to the church to clean up his act.

Khanye, who played for Malanti Chiefs in Swazi­land last sea­son, says he is now liv­ing a clean life af­ter join­ing the Zion Chris­tian Church (ZCC).

The for­mer star, who also turned out for Kaizer Chiefs, Plat­inum Stars and United Foot­ball Club dur­ing his trou­bled ca­reer, has even vis­ited the church’s head­quar­ters, Zion City in Mo­ria, out­side Polok­wane, and is now hop­ing to re­vive his soc­cer ca­reer.

Speak­ing in an in­ter­view with Kick­Off.com, Khanye says he is de­ter­mined to make up for lost time.

“I am liv­ing a clean life now. I have been to Mo­ria and now I am a fully fledged mem­ber of ZCC,” the 28-yearold says. “Go­ing to church has helped me a lot as a per­son.

“I just need another sec­ond chance in life. I be­lieve time is still on my side and I will bounce back to foot­ball very soon.”

Khanye, who was born and bred in Davey­ton, is cur­rently back home where he is keep­ing fit while he be­gins the search for a club.

“I am work­ing hard at train­ing,” he in­sists. “I am speak­ing to a few teams and hope­fully, in Jan­uary next year, I will be play­ing in the PSL.”— Kick­Off.
