Khune: That’s Why I Was Rewarded With The Call-Up

Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune, has opened up about his much-talked-about inclusion in the latest Bafana Bafana squad. 

Since the South African national team head coach Molefi Ntseki announced the squad for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sao Tome and Principe, there have been questions from some sections of the fraternity regarding Khune’s inclusion in the team as he hasn’t been playing regularly at club level.

Khune has made only two appearances in six matches for the Soweto giants under Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt. 

“It’s been a while since I represented my country, it was due to major injuries but at least I managed to get back, thank you very much to our medical team that made sure that I get back to my feet and start competing again,” said Khune, speaking to the media in Durban this week.

“I don’t have any niggling injuries at the moment, I’m ready to compete for number one at club level and here in the national team. I think that’s why I was rewarded with the call-up by coach Ntseki, he believes that I can add value into the team. So far, it’s been great since we came in, and myself, Ronza (Ronwen Williams) and Darren (Keet) have been pushing each other, and thanks to coach Lee (Baxter) for always keeping us on our toes,” said the experienced shot-stopper.
