Soccer Laduma reported that Nkosi waxed lyrical about Khune's free kick-taking ability when he worked as a pundit for the contest between Golden Arrows and Mamelodi Sundowns.

Nkosi said, “He takes the best free kicks you know. I always encouraged him to take them. Out of ten he would score seven in the top corner, the Cristiano Ronaldo type of shots.”

Briefly.co.za was able to source a video shared by Khune via Twitter, which showcases his set piece ability.

Khune takes three free kicks in the video and two of them find the top corner.

As a result of his injury battles, Khune has struggled to make the Chiefs lineup consistently, but perhaps his other skills could give coach Ernst Middendorp an extra reason to select him.
