Why Khune's Presence Will Be Crucial In Burkina Faso

Kaizer Chiefs captain Itumeleng Khune has explained how he will use his experience of playing Burkina Faso with Bafana Bafana in 2016 to help his teammates ahead of their CAF Champions League group stage clash.

Khune had an impressive game in goal for Bafana in 2016, saving a Jonathon Pitroipa penalty as the South Africans played to a 1-1 draw with the Burkinabe in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

Amakhosi fly out to Ouagadougou on a chartered flight on Friday, February 26, to take on Wydad on Sunday, on neutral ground after the Soweto giants were denied visas for a match that was initially scheduled to be played on February 13 in Casablanca.

After opening their group C campaign with a goalless draw against Guinean outfit Horoya at FNB Stadium earlier this week, Khune said they are ready to collect their first three points this weekend.

“I’ve been to Burkina Faso before with Bafana Bafana and we managed to draw, so I will help the guys to acclimatise well. I’ll help the guys to know what to expect in Ouagadougou. It’s not going to be an easy trip, but we know what’s expected of us. We have to go there and fight for the club, fight for the badge and represent the whole nation and make the country proud. We are looking forward to the challenge and we are ready for it,” Khune told the Chiefs media department.

Chiefs will be back in the country on Monday.
