Khune Sends Message To Chiefs Fans

After Kaizer Chiefs honoured Itumeleng Khune for 25 years of service, the Amakhosi goalkeeper sent a special message to the club’s supporters.

Khune was honoured at Saturday’s home game against Polokwane City, where the club celebrated the veteran goalkeeper who has been at the club for a quarter of a century.

The 36-year-old made an appearance off the bench as well, coming on for Bruce Bvuma in the goalless draw.

Speaking after the game, Khune paid tribute to the Amakhosi fans, and said Chiefs should be winning every game to show the supporters what they mean to the club

“All I can say is -we are nothing without the Amakhosi faithful,” Khune said on SuperSport. 

“Whenever they come to the stadiums to encourage us, they push us to get the desired results. 

We are not happy that every time we get on the field, we leave with our heads down. And we are sulking and look how happy they are. We just drew the match, which is not the Kaizer Chiefs’ standard. We should be winning each and every game, especially playing at home. 

“I know that all the games that we play, home or away, they are all Kaizer Chiefs home games because these people travel with us wherever we go. 

“So we need to appreciate them more by giving them the desired results. We just have to win matches for them, they deserve better. 

“And I think in the next coming season, we have to go back to the drawing boards and see where we can improve so that we make these people happy. They’re always happy to see us, they’re happy to support us, but we need to also give back to them, which is just a victory and put smiles on their faces.”
