Was Chiefs Missing A True Leader Like Khune?

Good morning Khosi fans. The club’s undefeated run has come to an end at the hands of SuperSport United, and as I reflect on the game, I have to wonder if the leadership of Itumeleng Khune was the missing ingredient? 

The shot-stopper is yet to make a league appearance since September last year, and despite being back from injury, he was on the bench for last night’s encounter. 

The team, albeit slightly reshuffled from Stuart Baxter’s preferred starting XI, looked short of true leadership and inspiration during the match. 

Tefu Mashamaite is the current interim captain of the team, and will carry the armband from now until Khune is officially back in between the sticks, but he doesn’t provide what Khune does. 

Masha, who is notoriously reserved and quiet, knows how to lead his boys and get the job done, however, he lacks that ability to spur the boys on. 

Khune is known for his ability to realign his teammates and reignite that fighting spirit in them, and that was evidently missing in last night’s 2-0 defeat.

While I have always been a fan of Brilliant Khuzwayo, maybe Baxter should consider putting Khune in the team purely for the natural motivation factor he instils.

Do you guys agree with this – was Khune’s spirit missing last night?
