Khune's Transfer Can Benefit Reyaad And Brilliant

From Cool Cat to Spiderman, Rowen to Emile, Amakhosi have had a great culture of producing top class national team goalkeepers.

With the uncertainty surrounding the future of former number one stopper Itumeleng Khune reaching its peak during this silly season; I firmly believe that Kaizer Chiefs should let go.

Obviously it will not be the easiest thing to do as Khune has been the mainstay at Chiefs for a good number of years, and has immense experience which counts massively in the fight for PSL title.

Remember Thela Ngobeni, the former Amajita goalkeeper who helped them qualify for the U20 World Cup? He was a talented young man who was Khune’s number two. The last I saw him was in the Multi-choice Diski Challenge, between the posts for Mamelodi Sundowns.

If Chiefs extend Khune’s stay then the inevitable will happen; eventually he will be the number one goalkeeper and therefore stall the progress of both Reyaad Pieterse and Brilliant Khuzwayo. This will lead to unnecessary unrest and one of the two up and coming shot stoppers will look for greener grass elsewhere.

The progress made by Khuzwayo (1990) and the stable abilities of Pieterse(1992) should be enough to persuade Chiefs against keeping Itumeleng Khune, or they will stand to lose another bright prospect just like Thela Ngobeni.

It’s time to let live and let go.
