Shongwe: Why Nobody Can Replace Khune At Chiefs

William Shongwe Discusses Kaizer Chiefs' Goalkeepers

By Kyle Smith - Jun 25, 2017 04:54 PM @KyleLaduma

Former Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper, William Shongwe, has discussed the difficult state of affairs in Kaizer Chiefs’ goalkeeping department, with Itumeleng Khune being the undisputed number one at the club.

Chiefs Respond To Bvuma R5000 Wage Claims

Khune has missed just six league games in the entire season, owing to niggling injuries in April and December last year and the 30-year-old has been the first-choice goalkeeper at the club for over a decade. However, Shongwe has praised backup goalkeeper, Brilliant Khuzwayo, for his perseverance in the team, despite limited playing time.

“Others might think that (Brilliant) Khuzwayo has what it takes, but for me, he has what it takes. He’s got that mentality. He’s a bit of a nut if you look at him,” the former shot-stopper explained. “But this is what helps. For anyone to keep his sanity, he has to be a bit nutty and Khuzwayo has that. If anything has kept him going, it’s that kind of attitude whereby, whatever happens, he keeps going. When you throw him in the deep end, he’s playing for Chiefs and he’s happy. He just produces.”

SAFPU Step In To Help Chiefs’ Keeper Amid Wage Debacle

Shongwe went on to discuss the goalkeeping position in general at Chiefs and why it’s so hard to take on the role, considering how indispensable Khune has become for the club.

“If you want to be serious as a goalkeeper at Chiefs, you can’t get disheartened, because it’s going to take long for you to get a shot if Khune’s not getting injured. It gets a little bit harder, but it’s why (Reyaad) Pieterse opted out and I don’t blame him,” he added.

“The thing about Khune is that he’s not the kind of goalkeeper where, if he gets injured, you come in and play well and you get to keep the number one spot. As soon as he comes right, you’re going to be robbed (of your starting role). What does that make you, as a goalkeeper? You basically become a squad member and it can be disheartening.”
