Itumeleng Khune ran to his own defence after a Twitter user reportedly said he should retire and focus on raising baby Amogelang. @Justicecisco4 then tweeted at Itu saying that he was being insulted by the soccer legend's fans.
@Justicecisco4 explained that he did not mean what he said in a bad way and thanked Itu for not taking it to heart. Itu, on the other hand, ignored a majority of @Justicecisco4 to focus on the retirement part.
"I’m still young to even think about retirement sir," Itu said.

"We still need you Mzansi's No.1, this season is yours."
"You must make sure that when you retire your lil bro fills in your boots, or should I say gloves, but you know what I mean. Man the Khune name must never die."
"You still have to go take your place at Bafana. You have a lot to offer King Itu."
