Itumeleng Khune is hailed as one of the greatest goalkeepers to ever don the famous Amakhosi black and gold jersey. ITU a product of the Chiefs youth side joined the team almost 21 years ago.



Since joining the youth ranks to the senior team, he has made a name for himself. He has since won numerous individual accolades and trophies with Amakhosi.


Itumeleng Khune has been going through a rough patch of late in his career. Khune's woes started on December last year in a match against Black Leopards, when clearing a ball resulting in a blunder with Leopards Ovidy Karuru netting in a goal. A week later Khune's pulled the same move which resulted to Supersport United's Bradley Grobler chipping over the ball resulting to a goal.



Following his two blunders Khune would then be sidelined with Daniel Akpeyi taking over the gloves. Days leading to Christmas it was also reported that his wife Siphelele Makhunga had moved house, spending the holidays with her family in Durban. According to information, it was reported that Makhunga was fed up with ITU and hence leaving him alone in their lovenest.



A few weeks ago, Amakhosi initiated a captaincy change with Itumeleng Khune's stripped of the captaincy with Ramahlwe Mphahlele taking over as the captain for the season. There has also been reports of Khune losing a multi million rand sponsorship deal with DanUp.



To add to his woes, Amakhosi recently banned ITU from any social media activities in order for him to focus more on his game. A few days back it has now been reported that he has lost his young sister Mapula Meikie Khune, who tragedly passed away after a fire started in her grandmother home in Tshing, North West.



Recently there has been also talks linking ITU with a move away from Naturena, it has been revealed that a Qatari team may be in need of his service. ITU contract is alleged to be expiring at the end of June, according to information he is yet to receive a new contract with Amakhosi.



In the past few months Itumeleng Khune's has lost his reputation as a trusted goalie, also had marital problems and mostly tragedly losing a loved one. We can hope Khune will be able to get over his woes. As a great player we can only hope he can rise about it all.
