"This is a mistake guys, Khune has to earn his place on the team. Akpeyi has proven to be better than Khune, why change him?"

@nnyambeniRamat1 said:

"Kaizer Chiefs is going to lose this game why because there's no understanding between Itumeleng and the players they don't understand him like the likes of Renelwe, Tshabalala, and Parker I am just saying my facts"

@SkimelaPE said:

"I like the fact that Khune is no longer our Captain. Well done Hunt for taking away armband from underperforming Khune. Keep going Rama our new skipper."
