Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi has thanked fans for their support, and vowed to come back stronger, after suffering from concussion in the game against Bidvest Wits, reports Completesports.com.

Akpeyi collided with Bidvest Wits’ Mxolisi Macuphu while attempting to punch the ball away in the 43rd minute of the keenly contested encounter.

The 34-year-old received medical attention on the pitch before he was strechered off later.

    Thank God. But hope you stay out of the National team come October and November and then one more match to bid us farewell (Retire) internationally. I said what I said.
