Worst Ever Season For Chiefs’ Khune…

The year 2019 will not be one that Kaizer Chiefs’ Itumeleng Khune looks back on fondly, and he’ll no doubt be hoping for better in the new year once this month comes to an end.

Having played just two games over the course of the entire calendar year, 2019 will officially go down as the worst year in Khune’s career since his Amakhosi debut, especially given the fact that it was another year of the club’s trophy drought.

A shoulder injury that required surgery cut short the 32-year-old 2018/19 Absa Premiership campaign prematurely, and then he was dealt another blow shortly after his comeback in September when he picked up a groin injury midway into a game against Baroka FC.

Now, while there is a small chance that the shot-stopper could feature in the final game of the year against Maritzburg United, it looks likely that he will finish the year with just 118 minutes to his name in all competitions, and no silverware to add to his trophy cabinet.

2020 could be a better year though, with Chiefs still on course to lift the league title in the year of their 50th anniversary and the ‘keeper back in full training as he seeks to get match fit once again – but it remains up to Ernst Middendorp and his medical team as to when he could be back in action again.

Who should start for Chiefs when all are fit – Itumeleng Khune, Daniel Akpeyi or Bruce Bvuma?
