Khune Gives Future Update

Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has insisted his journey has not ended, and Saturday’s actions by the club were to honour his 25 years of service and not a farewell.

Khune, 36, was honoured ahead of Chiefs’ goalless draw with Polokwane City, with the former captain coming off the bench in the final 15 minutes.

However, Khune insisted it was a farewell, as he still has more to offer for the club.

“This journey is still long,” he told SuperSport TV’s Lerato Phago.

“We’re still going to see each other, we’re still going to travel together, as much as we have been traveling it and I appreciate everything that everyone has done for me.

“It’s not a farewell. The club made it clear that they are honouring me for 25 years of service. They didn’t say ‘we’re bidding farewell to Itumeleng Khune’.

“I think we will go back, sit down and discuss the future. But for now, nothing has been confirmed yet.

“My legs can still carry me for the next couple of years, so I will continue giving my all whenever given the opportunity to don the black and gold jersey of Kaizer Chiefs.”

Khune’s contract with Chiefs is coming to an end and the club announced ahead of the 2023/24 season that it will be his last as player before he’ll pick up a different role at the club.
