TBT - When Khune Flexed ‘Top 3 In The World’ Distribution Rating

As a goalkeeper, Kaizer Chiefs star Itumeleng Khune is known for being one of the best distributors of the ball. This is an attribute he no doubt is proud of, especially when he boasted a stat that he shares with only three other goalkeepers in the world. Check it out!

What’s the story?

When it comes to popularity, Khune is up there with many of the fan favourites in South African football. While fans love Itu, the Amakhosi man is also one of his generation’s best players, with many considering him to be an all-time great in the PSL.

These days, Khune plays more of a subdued role in the Chiefs team and is no longer a regular between the sticks for the club he has been with his entire career.

The likes of Daniel Akpeyi, Bruce Bvuma and more recently Brandon Petersen are also in line for a spot in goal, however, Khune has often reminded fans of what he can do.


Distribution 101

As an attribute Khune has honed over the years, his distribution technique and kicking ability have been thoroughly appreciated by supporters.

In early January, Khune took to his social media accounts where he boasted a unique statistic, where he was ranked in the top three distributors among goalkeepers on the FIFA21 game.


Top 3

With a kicking rating of 90, only Bayern Munich's Manuel Neuer (91) and Ederson Moraes (93) of Manchester City are above Khune in this regard.

That said, the latest edition of FIFA will be launched in early October as one of the most highly anticipated releases in the gaming world.

According to, Itu is still one of the highest-rated Chiefs players on the game and is said to have kept his 90 kicking rating as well.
