“I know you can do it my Son. Bathathe.”
“Please come back with that star.”
“Sure ntwana make sure they don't score.”
“Mzansi's finest, go out there, make us proud & bring it home.”
“Good luck bafe2, one more game we'll be champions, I trust that Khama will be ready for the final, we need someone like him in attack.”
“All the best Mzansi's number one. We need your shout to the defence out there. May the Glamour Boys do wonders.”
Kaizer Chiefs and Itumeleng Khune getting ready for CAF Champions League final
Amakhosi will be hoisting the South African flag next week when they travel to Morocco for the final. The match against coach Pitso Mosimane’s troops will be staged at Stade Mohammed V at 9pm on 17 July.
With the Soweto giants having defeated Wydad Casablanca in the previous stage, they are not touted as favourites but the Mzansi club can stun the former Mamelodi Sundowns boss.
Khune and a number of experienced players such as Bernard Parker, Erick Mathoho as well as Willard Katsande are all expected to play a massive leadership role to ensure they emerge as victors.
