Kaizer Chiefs captain Itumeleng Khune says that while they miss their fans, they know they are watching and supporting the team from home.
Khune was speaking ahead of tonight’s DSTV Premiership clash between Chiefs and Black Leopards.
Khune feels that the Leopards game is a good opportunity for the Amakhosi to turn their season around, and build some momentum
“It’s not going to be easy. But we have good energy and we have a great attitude in the camp at the moment,” Khune was quoted as saying on the club’s website.
“We are looking forward to hosting Black Leopards on Wednesday evening. Obviously winning the game and making our supporters proud are our biggest priorities.”
“We did not start the season well. We have a chance on Wednesday against Leopards who have also not been doing too well. We stand a great chance of getting a positive result because of the confidence we gained against Bamenda.”
Khune admits that Chiefs do miss having their vocal supporters at the game.
“Everyone is getting used to the ‘new normal’ but it’s been difficult.”
“We are used to playing in packed stadiums and we miss our fans.”
“They are the driving force behind the team. They give us a lot of confidence going into games. There is a big difference in not having them in the stadium but it’s encouraging to know they are rooting for us from home.”
“We promise them that will continue working hard and push for positive results whenever we play.”
