Khune sends an apology to Amakhosi

Now, according to The Citizen, Khune penned an apology to everyone linked with the club.

“He knows that he disappointed many people with what he did and feels very bad about the whole situation,” said the source. “There are lots of people who look up to him, especially young players at the club and for someone like him to do what he did was just unexpected. He has apologised to everyone, especially the players because he knows that he let them down as a senior player.

“He’s apparently going through a lot, but that’s not an excuse to behave the way he did. He knows he is supposed to be a good example on and off the field. There will be a big punishment coming for him, but he said he is ready to face anything.”
