Khune v Jaakkola: Who'll Win?

As loyal readers and fans of Soccer Laduma, we've surely all been following the Team of the Season voting both in the paper and on the website. 

As a passionate Kaizer Chiefs fan myself for many years, it came as a shock to see Itumeleng Khune being so closely followed in the voting by Anssi Jaakkola.

This surely can't be right! 

Khune plays for a team that are number one one in the PSL. He is the leader and inspiration of our defence and he's the closest thing to a world class player Mzansi has got. Virtually every week he produces performances from the top drawer.

In other words, the pressure he's under is immense and yet he still delivers to a very high level. His recent absence due to injury exposed some of the failings we as a club have when he's not there - the back four just aren't the same.

Don't get it wrong, Jaakkola is a good player. But he plays for a small team away from the real pressure. Yes, he's stood out and done well for Ajax Cape Town - but this is King Khune we're talking about! 

So, Chiefs fans, let's get voting and make sure 'Itu' gets what he deserves. It's because the proof is obvious - Khune v Jaakkola - who'll win? Without a shadow of a doubt, it's Khune!
