Sphelele Khune: Itumeleng’s Rock, Number One Fan, and Forever Cuddle Partner
While Mzansi celebrates Itumeleng Khune as a footballing hero, it’s his wife, Sphelele, who holds the title of his biggest fan and cheerleader.
On her recent birthday, Itu took to Instagram to shower her with love and appreciation, proving she’s not just his wife, but his partner in crime, his forever love, and his favorite cuddle buddy.
Their journey began in 2019, shortly after Itu’s previous relationship ended.
Despite a nearly 10-year age gap, their connection was undeniable, with Sphelele claiming they’d even dated before.
Two years later, they sealed their love with a traditional wedding ceremony, and soon welcomed daughters Lesedi Ziyanda and Amogelang Zenande.
Sphelele has been Itu’s unwavering rock, standing by him through thick and thin.
From weathering criticism of his fitness, weight, and age to cheering him on at every game, her support has been unwavering.
Even during his Kaizer Chiefs suspension, she’s been his anchor, offering words of encouragement on social media and shutting down any negativity.
Sphelele’s loyalty extends beyond Itu.
She’s been vocal in defending his ex, Minnie Dlamini, against unwarranted comparisons and criticism.
This unwavering support showcases the depth of her dedication and the strength of their bond.
In a world where athletes are often praised for their goals and trophies, Itumeleng Khune reminds us that true champions have a powerful support system behind them.
Sphelele is more than just Itu’s wife; she’s his confidante, his cheerleader, and his partner in life’s journey.
Their story is a testament to the power of love, loyalty, and the unwavering support that makes life’s victories all the sweeter.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
