Itumeleng Khune was drafted back into the Kaizer Chiefs side against Cape Town City, and that defeat extended an unwanted record.
TERRIBLE KHUNE STAT FOR KAIZER CHIEFS
According to OptaJabu, Kaizer Chiefs have lost each of their last seven league games when Itumeleng Khune started. It’s not the type of record any player wants to have, and certainly not one you’d associate with the great man.
AMAKHOSI SPOT THE ‘NEXT KHUNE’ AT NATURENA
According to reports via SoccerLaduma, Kaizer Chiefs have earmarked a long-term replacement for Itumeleng Khune. Khune is now in his 17th season with the club he’s served with such distinction. He recently made his 364th appearance for Amakhosi, the most of any player in the club’s PSL era history. The 2023-24 campaign will be his last at the club as a player.
AMAKHOSI STILL LICKING THEIR WOUNDS
The Glamour Boys have an agonizing wait until their next fixture against Golden Arrows on October 28th. It’s not an ideal time to be waiting around, considering they just suffered their first home league defeat of the season, and their fourth overall in the DStv Premiership this term. Molefi Ntseki’s men are already 13 points off the title pace and leaders Sundowns have a game in hand.
