Kaizer Chiefs' Ace on the mend after car crash
His car was hit from behind
SOUTH African soccer star and Kaizer Chiefs technical staff member Donald "Ace" Khuse is recovering at home after being injured in a car crash in Johannesburg a week ago.
Khuse said from his home yesterday: "It happened late on Thursday last week on Main Reef Road. It was raining on that day. I sustained neck and back injuries. I'm feeling much better now. I want to thank all the people who have been sending me messages wishing me a speedy recovery."
Khuse, whose car was hit from behind, was on his way to his home on the West Rand after the club's training session in Naturena.
He was travelling alone at the time of the accident.
Amakhosi general manager Bobby Motaung said: "We wish Dodo a speedy recovery, he will be back at the club as soon as the injuries have healed".
Also known as "Didi" in soccer circles, Khuse works with the Chiefs' development but attends the training sessions of the senior team along with former Chiefs player Arthur Zwane.
One of the three soccer stars from Mohlakeng township on the West Rand nicknamed "Ace", Khuse started his professional career at Orlando Pirates from Lincon City, a club that also produced Daniel "Ruu" Ramarutsi.
He then moved to neighbours Kaizer Chiefs, where he formed a great combination with Doctor Khumalo, which continued into Bafana Bafana.
