DSTV COMPACT CUP: ITUMELENG KHUNE ENJOYS HIMSELF
Saturday saw Warriors FC become the champions of the DStv Premiership’s new Compact Cup. The Gauteng side beat Coastal United 2-1, thanks to a rather brilliant brace from Swallows FC’s Ruzaigh Gamildien.
Following the celebrations, Itumeleng Khune was quick to make the most of it all. The Amakhosi goalkeeper got hold of the TV mic before going on to interview players on the pitch. This has actually become a growing trend in local and international football.
The video sees the 34-year-old goalkeeper chat to Kaizer Chiefs’ rising star Sabelo Radebe, Bruce Bvuma and his goalkeeper coach for the Compact Cup, and lastly Orlando Pirates veteran Happy Jele.
Check out the video below, as shared by SuperSport TV.
KHUNE RESPONDS TO RETIREMENT SUGGESTION
Following one supporters’ tweet on the Twitter platform about Khune’s future, the former Bafana Bafana star was quick to send out a firm reply.
The Twitter user with the handle @oyama_yaya simply imagined how emotional it would be to witness Kaizer Chiefs’ Khune retire one day.
“Khune deserves a farewell match. I’ll shed tears when he retires,” he said.
The legendary goalkeeper, who is sometimes known as “Mzansi’s number one,” responded with a short but firm statement. The veteran suggested that the idea is still a distant possibility.
“I’m not going to retire anytime soon Fam,” Khune said before adding a wink and praying hands emojis.
