When Itumeleng Khune made his return to Naturena, a lot of people had wondered what it took for Amakhosi to take him back.

Now Sunday World has revealed that a pay cut may have just done the trick.

The site reports that Khune used to get paid R325 000 per month in the previous season but has now has had to accept 20% in order to avoid unemployment.

The publication reached out to the PSL side's spokesman Vina Maphosa but all he could say is that he couldn't reveal much.

"I'm not allowed to talk about that matter but all I can confirm now is that Khune's matter was settled," he told the site.

"Other things will be dealt with at a press conference or in the statement we will issue."

It took an anonymous source to reveal whether the speculations were true or not.

"The chairman didn't want to set a wrong example by paying him what he been paying or acceding to his ridiculous demands. But because of his generous heart, he gave him a market-related offer that still befits the player of his stature," the source told Sunday World.

Whatever it took, it definitely worked because Khune has now returned home just as the season is about to begin.
