Khune discussed their ambitions from a young age, and what they had told each other when they first met and became friends.

“To become one of the best goalkeepers in the country. I grew up looking up to Brian Baloyi, he grew up from Orlando Pirates academy looking up to Williams Okapara,” Khune says at the event, as recorded by Gagasi FM Sports.

“We told ourselves at a very young age, I think when we first me we were 15, we want to take over as national team goalkeepers.

“We want to play in the Derby. One of the best derbies in the world.”
