Khune On PSL Award: It’s A Motivation
Kaizer Chiefs' Itumeleng Khune Scooped The Player Of The Month
Itumeleng Khune says he’ll work even harder to keep winning trophies for the club after being awarded the Absa Premiership Player of the Month gong this week.
The 30-year-old has been in fine form for the Amakhosi since the start of the season, picking up numerous Man of the Match awards as he consistently managed to keep his side in games that could well have gone out of reach.
Khune, who is also coming off the back of a solid performance for Bafana Bafana against Burkina Faso, has credited the whole ‘Kaizer Chiefs family’ after winning his first monthly – it was for August/September award in a long time.
He told Chiefs’ official website, “The last time I won this was three seasons ago… I dedicate this honour to the entire Kaizer Chiefs Family, as without a combined team effort I would never have won this.
“It’s a motivation to be recognised and it makes every player work harder, however with every achievement comes responsibility. I look ahead to work hard with the team to win more trophies for the club.”
Chiefs’ next game sees them face Mamelodi Sundowns next week.
