Itumeleng Khune drops BOMBSHELL about Kaizer Chiefs playing career!

Kaizer Chiefs honoured long-serving captain Itumeleng Khune, for his 25 years of service to the club. 

This Khune tribute took place before Chiefs’ last home game of the season, against Polokwane City at the FNB Stadium

With Chiefs still having a lot to play for, with regards to securing their top eight hopes, they didn’t deliver. Three points would’ve been the order of the day, but in the end they had to settle for a point, which keeps them in eighth going to the last day. It would not just be a watching brief for Khune, though as he ended up coming on to make his fifth appearance of the season,  off the bench. 

Khune honoured by Chiefs

Many in the stadium gave him an ovation in what they felt as if, was his last home game for Chiefs. Luckily for him and the club, he was able to at least maintain the clean sheet. After the goalless draw, however, he spoke to the media, in a post-match press conference. Khune made it clear that the occasion was a tribute and not necessarily a last game before retirement! 

“This journey is still long. We’re still going to see each other, we’re still going to travel together, as much as we have been traveling it and I appreciate everything that everyone has done for me. It’s not a farewell. The club made it clear that they are honouring me for 25 years of service. They didn’t say ‘we’re bidding farewell to Itumeleng Khune’. I think we will go back, sit down and discuss the future. But for now, nothing has been confirmed yet. My legs can still carry me for the next couple of years, so I will continue giving my all whenever given the opportunity to don the black and gold jersey of Kaizer Chiefs.” Said Khune to SuperSport TV as per iDiski Times.

Not retiring yet?

This publication reported earlier in the week that Chiefs had given Khune two options. Either retire and take up a position in the backroom of the club, or continue his playing career elsewhere. The 37-year-old veteran seem ready to continue fighting for his career!
