Kaizer Chiefs might have found a long-term heir to the considerable throne of club skipper Itumeleng Khune.
CHIEFS 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. For the record, Chiefs have lost each of the last seven league games he’s started.
NKOSI IS NEXT FOR KAIZER CHIEFS
Katlehong-born Lungile Nkosi, still just 20, is a man the Chiefs management expects big things from in the future. He recently recovered from a nine-month injury layoff and is ready to go again. Alongside Bernard Parker’s cousin Donay Janse, Nkosi has been invited to train with the senior side after excelling with the Diski Challenge structure.
The Glamour Boys are next in action away to Golden Arrows on October 28th. Will Khune retain his place in the side?
