- Kaizer Chiefs' number one Itumeleng Khune’s impressive save helped the team to reach the CAF Champions League quarter-final in a draw against AC Horoya
- Itumeleng Khune shared a video of him denying the AC Horoya player with a superb save in Kaizer Chiefs colours last weekend
- Many of Itumeleng Khune’s fans are impressed and still rate him as the best keeper to have ever donned the Kaizer Chiefs uniform
Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune is receiving good reviews on social media after producing a superb save in their draw against AC Horoya last weekend.
Dubbed as Amakhosi's number one and finest, Khune took to his social media account to share a video clip of his acrobatic skills between the goalposts.
Coach Gavin Hunt led his crippled squad owing to injuries to a CAF Champions League encounter against the side from Guinea away from home where they secured a vital 2-2 draw.
In the wake of the draw, the Soweto giants have now joined fellow South African side, Mamelodi Sundowns, in the quarter-finals of the continental club tournament.
Briefly News takes a look at the comments on Khune’s video and there’s no doubt many of the Bafana Bafana international’s followers still rate him highly.
“I really appreciate you Khune, you worked hard for us, as Kaizer Chiefs fans, thank you.”
“You've been the best since from day one and I wish you break the Buffon records so you retire after 40 years.”
@Luzo_Swana praised the North West-born:
“Mzansi’s finest!!! Keep going, bro. I vouch for you through and through! The best in the continent.”
“Don't leave Kaizer Chiefs, remember this is the only team you have ever played for. I dream of seeing you become a goalkeeper coach for the Amakhosi in the near future. Do the 17 years you spent at this team mean nothing to you?”
Meanwhile, Briefly News ran a story that Khune's future remains a subject of speculation and was set to meet the management at the end of the 2010/21 DStv Premiership season.
The veteran netminder was set to meet the club's hierarchy in the next coming weeks to decide his stay at Naturena.
Born in Ventersdorp in the North West province now known as Bopkone Bophirima, 'Itu' has been a long-serving member of the Amakhosi family but lack of game time in recent times may suggest he could part ways with the club.
