Former Kaizer Chiefs winger Junior Khanye will appear in a reality show called Fixing the Game: Junior Khanye.

The 38-year-old once had the world at his feet when he debuted for Amakhosi back in 2002. He instantly became the darling of the Chiefs faithful due to his pace, technique and dribbling abilities. Unfortunately, his career was short-lived due to ill-disciplined and alcohol abuse

In the 14-part series, former Chiefs star Khanye talks about getting a “second chance at life”.

Having disappeared from the limelight for over a decade, the former dribbling wizard resurfaced in 2019. When asked to make league prediction for the 2019/20 season, Junior Khanye correctly predicted Chiefs to lose the title to Mamelodi Sundowns.

The video of his prediction was shared countrywide with many disagreeing with him. At the time, Amakhosi were leading the log by 13 points but the Daveyton-born ex-footballer was critical of his former club.

“I will be straightforward to you, don’t see Kaizer Chiefs winning the league. I will be honest to you,” Khanye told iDiski TV then.

Sundowns will go on and clinch the title on the final day of the season. Since then, Khanye has appeared in several soccer shows, with some fans waiting in anticipation for his match analysis and predictions.

Having bagged a new show, the former Amakhosi star said he was grateful for the opportunity and wanted to set a positive example.

“I know that not everyone gets an opportunity and platform like this one and I know it’s God’s way of helping me teach other people about making the right choices in life,” said Khanye.

“I am honoured and humbled and through this show, I want to be an example that every change you want in your life starts with you.”

Having played for the likes of Chiefs and Maritzburg United, Khanye is now a coach having started his club.

“Everyone loves a good comeback story and ‘Fixing the Game’ is one that we hope viewers will enjoy and also identify with,” said Shirley Adonisi, Channel Director for Local Entertainment Channels.

Fixing the Game: Junior Khanye’ premieres on Mzansi Wethu on Thursday, 11 July at 18:30.
