A clip of a man who looks shockingly similar to South African goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune, drunk and having fun at an unknown groove, has been shared online by popular Twitter user, @Kulanicool.
While it is unclear whether or not the person in the clip is actually Khune or when exactly the clip was taken, it has resulted in the soccer star trending on SA Twitter streets since early this morning as many South Africans shared their thoughts on Khune.
"Khune is a happy gent," Kulani captioned the post.
Meanwhile, other locals also headed to Twitter and using the hashtag #Khune to express their thoughts on his behaviour and the latest developments in his life and career over the last few months. Read a few of their comments below:
"Being a celebrity is hard, you can't do things everyone does. How is Khune different from the people who are taking this vid? They were also there having fun but Khune can't. Imagine dating a man who's a Twitter Shwashwi."
"He focused on building his career first now enjoying the benefits of his hard work. Some celebrate while there’s no future then they start hating those who worked hard kusakhanya."
"Can’t a nigga have some nice time without someone recording him just to trend... whoever recorded this was totally wrong?"
"He is a public figure, he knows that the same thing happens to the like sof Malema and others, it's the life of a celebrity or public figure, nothing new."
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Itumeleng Khune is no longer the captain of Mzansi's Kaizer Chiefs. Khune has been replaced by the team's defender Ramahlwe Mpahlele, coach Gavin Hunt confirmed after a disappointing match against KZN's AmaZulu.
Khune seems to be having a bad spell in his career as of late after he played for the first time yesterday in nearly two whole months. The goalkeeper is also said to have lost a big endorsement deal with Danone's Danup.
In the meantime, South African football fans have headed online to share their thoughts about Khune's demotion from captaincy. While many thought it a good idea, others were on the fence about it.
