Kaizer Chiefs legend Khune to CPT City? club comments

Kaizer Chiefs legend Itumeleng Khune has been recently linked with a move to Cape Town City next season.

The 36-year-old keeper’s contract with Chiefs expires at the end of the season. The Soweto Giants have offered their long serving player a coaching role for next season but it appears Khune still wants to play another season. Last weekend, the former Bafana Bafana captain played what looked like his last game for Amakhosi.

Cape Town City boss John Comitis has spoken out on rumours linking Kaizer Chiefs star Itumeleng Khune to the club.

“Khune is still good. As a goalkeeper you mature with age and looking at Khune’s age right now, that is the right age for a goalkeeper to keep on playing. He can still play for any team in the PSL and still do well. He is still a very good goalkeeper for any club that may need him,” Comitis told Soccer Laduma.

Kaizer Chiefs star Itu Khune not in CPT City plans for now…

“We still have Darren Keet. We will persevere with Keet at the moment, we don’t need Khune right now. As I have said before, he is a good goalkeeper but for now, we are good with what we have and that’s Darren Keet for us,” he concluded.

Khune’s move from Kaizer Chiefs to CPT City is unlikely given how consistent Keet has performed for the club over the years. The former Bafana shotstopper was second or third choice keeper in the national team during Khune’s peak years. With two years separating the two keepers, Commitis doesn’t want too many overaged players in his squad it seems.

Mzansi’s finest perhaps is best suited for teams needing an experienced keeper. With City continuing with Keet, Khune might consider other options if he decides not to take Kaizer Chiefs’ offer for retirement. Clubs like SuperSport United, TS Galaxy and Stellenbosch might use the keeper’s experience and leadership.

The 36-year-old veteran keeper has at least two months to decide on his next move.
