- Kaizer Chiefs goalkeepers Itumeleng Khune and Daniel Akpeyi are fighting for one spot, but are two of the best in the country
- The two shot-stoppers have sparked a huge response from fans and pundits as each one boasts a unique following
- Fan-favourite Khune recently took to social media and hailed Akpeyi as the best in the business
Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp is the envy of many PSL coaches this season.
Not only does the German coach boast an attacking force featuring the likes of Khama Billiat, Samir Nurkovic and Leo Castro, but he can call upon a solid defence.
In Itumeleng Khune and Daniel Akpeyi, Middendorp actually has the luxury of calling upon two of the best goalkeepers in the Absa Premiership.
Khune has been number one for Chiefs and Bafana for many a year, but he's been displaced by the in-form Akpeyi.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Akpeyi lauded Khune and labelled him a legend.
Akpeyi went further and pleaded with fans to support the squad as a whole and to stop causing division.
On Monday, Khune returned the favour and hailed Akepyi as the best in the business.
Khune's selfless and gracious tweet was admired by thousands, as the post went viral.
Mbaliyezwe Ndlela (@mbali_ndlela) said,
"You're both the best."
Kagiso (@Kagiso14303996) added,
"U are still Mzansi's Finest."
MUFC-GGMU (@AfricaaGuy) responded,
"You are the ultimate professional Khune, kudos to you."
