As of mid-August, Khune had made only one appearance in the league, which came in a 1-0 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns in the MTN8 tournament in mid-August.
Ronnie Kanalelo, a former Mamelodi Sundowns player, thinks that "we need to be practical rather than being stuck in the past."
Khune, who is still under contract with the Chiefs until the end of next season, has appeared in less than a fifth of the team's games over the last four seasons.
In the past, there is no doubt that he (Khune) performed admirably, but injuries have hindered his performance in recent years, and he is not getting younger. Itumeleng Khune came before Brian Baloyi, who came before Brian, and before Brian, there were other keepers.
It's important to be realistic about this situation since we don't know what the underlying problem is with him not even being able to sit on the bench. The Chiefs have three more keepers, two of them are younger in the form of Bvuma and Peterson, and all three are capable of doing their jobs. I believe that the club has realized that they cannot remain locked in the past, and with Bvuma, who is a member of the national team, he represents the future of the club.
When it comes to his game, Akpeyi has a calm demeanor, which makes him appear unassuming and unpopular. However, what counts is that he gets the job done. Itu has the ability to play for another four or five years, but the question is whether he wants to spend those years at a different organization.
In the current situation, Chiefs is doing great without him, and we are unsure whether he still has what it takes to play for the Chiefs. "I would not want to get past what Itu did some 10 or 15 years ago when he first started coming through to take over at Chiefs and in the national team," Kanalelo said of his former teammate's actions.
