Khune's Clean Sheet Stats On Par With Europe's Best

Kaizer Chiefs' Itumeleng Khune's Clean Sheet Stats On Par With Europe's Best

By David Kappel - Mar 01, 2018 07:15 PM @kappilinho

Itumeleng Khune has already kept 12 clean sheets in the Premier Soccer League this season, and his current record is comparable to Europe's best goalkeepers, including David de Gea.

Click through the gallery above to see how Khune compares to Europe's best goalkeepers so far this season.

The 30-year-old has not conceded a goal in 12 of his 20 league appearances for Amakhosi this season, which means he kept a clean sheet in 60% of his games.

After missing the first two matches of the campaign, Khune has started the past 20 PSL games for Chiefs and his clean sheet record puts him on par with Europe's best shot-stoppers.

Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak has managed to keep an impressive 17 clean sheets in the Spanish top flight already this season. The 25-year-old has conceded in only nine out of his 26 appearances for the Rojiblancos in 2017/18, meaning he has kept a clean sheet in 65% of the games he has played.

The Slovenia international is followed by FC Barcelona's Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who has – like Khune – kept a clean sheet in 60% of his games, having conceded in only 10 of his 25 appearances in LaLiga so far in this campaign.

Manchester United's De Gea completes the top three after preventing his Premier League opponents from scoring in 15 of his 28 matches this campaign, which equals a clean sheet rate of 53.6%.

Its amazing that we have had a great goalkeeper for so long, yet we cannot win anything. He truly is the best player in our team. If we could have just two players at his level - a midfielder and a striker. We could dominate the PSL. But his goal area turns into a shooting range because of the hopeless men in-front of him. Eish....!

Cowditor you once said "Sergio Ramos has scored more goals than all kaizer Chiefs strikers combined" With that being said how could you compare Khune who is playing in a less competitive league with Europe? Its not just Chiefs strikers all PSL strikers are not sharp at the front lines. This post is totally ridiculous you cannot compare a king to a servant. #Checkmate

It is expected in that 8-1-1 formation for fat cake Khune to have so many clean sheets.

Comparing Khune to European keepers is stupidity at it best, given the difference between the quality of strikers in Europe and SA....Our strikers can't even reach 15 goals in a season

If we may count his man of the match awards then we will know that Khune is a real deal, playing behind many defenders is nothing of an excuse since you all know how many times he kept Chiefs in games that mostly seemed we were never going to win nor draw. Deep down you know he is good, it's just that you will never admit to that since you are an opposition. Now take that...

Why not, when they play not to lose and with a loads of goalless draws plus 7 defenders. No wonder Kompela has never won a Soweto derby even against Pirstes' weakest coaches.
