Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has reached a milestone for the Soweto giants and he is still counting.

Dubbed as one of the finest goalkeeping products, the North West-born shot-stopper is still seen as an asset for Chiefs despite having a season of mixed fortunes.

The veteran netminder has been a suspect on a number of occasions where the supporters feel he has let them down and conceded erratic and cheap goals.

Coached by the experienced and astute manager in the form of Gavin Hunt, Chiefs are fighting very hard to secure a top-eight finish as the season draws to a close.

They currently occupy the number nine spot on the DStv Premiership table with 28 points and Hunt will bank on the likes of Khune to ensure they qualify for the MTN8 next season.

Briefly News takes a glance at the congratulatory messages from the Bafana Bafana international’s fans.

“Khune we lost on Wednesday please stop this.”

@LawrenceMaile1 said:

"That's a milestone, my captain. Keep on working hard and prove all traitors wrong. You are still the best goalkeepers South Africa ever produced. Our proudly keeper in SA indeed.”

In other sports news, Briefly News reported that the club's skipper had praised himself after producing a superb save against Mamelodi Sundowns last week.

The Amakhosi keeper was instrumental for the Soweto giants as they 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.
