Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has praised himself for guiding the club to a vital win against Mamelodi Sundowns last weekend.
The Soweto giants claimed the full three points as they handed Masandawana their first loss of the season in the DStv Premiership.
Chiefs fought back to bag a 2-1 lead and secured the crucial points, but the big talking point came when Khune denied Kermit Erasmus in the dying minutes of the clash.
The Bafana Bafana international has come under heavy criticism this season where many of the fans felt he gave away cheap and silly goals.
But with that superb save against the reigning DStv Premiership champions, Khune could have restored the faith of many of his fans.
Briefly News takes a look at the comments from social media where some have reminded him that Chiefs is struggling because of errors. Khune tweeted:
"Let’s take a moment today and celebrate yourself. We don’t celebrate ourselves except for big moments; birthdays, weddings, etc.
"You are alive during a time great change. You’re doing great. Give yourself some love."
"Best of the best Mzansi's finest. @BafanaBafana and @KaizerChiefs to do well they both need this guy to be in top form.. #form is temporary, #class is permanent.”
“Excellent shot by Kermit. Top drawer save by Spider-kid who is a kid no more.”
“That was going over the crossbar..you just giving away an unnecessary corner kick.”
“As an Orlando Pirates fan, you're the best goalkeeper we have ever seen in the league and in Africa.”
“Suka, wena! Sisengxakini nje nguwe lo (We are in a problem because of you). Don't try to make us forget."
“When I saw you shouting at the defence I knew things are beginning to go well with your confidence and attitude towards the game. Because the talent has always been there, Mzansi's number one - Chiefs' finest getting to what we know him for.”
Just before the match, Briefly News reported that Khune had warned Sundowns, that they are coming for a war on Sunday afternoon.
The Amakhosi veteran said they are a big team and cannot afford to drop points in the DStv Premiership, especially as they are licking their wounds heading to Tshwane.
Chiefs lost 2-1 to Cape Town City during the week at FNB Stadium and their mission was to avenge the 3-0 loss they suffered against the Brazilians in the first round.
