Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter pointed out that experienced goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune's recent troubles shouldn't have prevented him from getting a contract extension from his previous club, the Chiefs. Sydney Mahlangu: photo
Ex-captain Itumeleng Khune, despite a recent downturn in form, was given a contract extension by the Kaizer Chiefs.
Khune signed a new two-year contract, under which he will remain at the club until he turns 36.
Baxter discussed Khune's contract renewal in a pre-match interview ahead of the Carling Black Label Cup.
When I was playing soccer in both my neighborhood and across the street, Khune was my motivator. While I was doing the same as it, regrettably, I was not as active in playing as I am now and therefore did not achieve my goal. And in his father's absence, Senzo has come to join me Every morning, bla and khozi rise for a bath.That save gave us hope that we could still pull out a victory. We went on penalties and won.
We would have lost if we had Khune on the penalty bench.
Everybody knows him around the team.
Pietersen fared very well, and his lack of notoriety in the Pirate organization is unknown to his teammates.
Thanks to you both Khune and Pietersen.
Now in the PSL, we have four of the top goalkeepers.
Our cabinet requires more trophies today.
