Khune: I Don’t Blame Them For Hammering Us

Itumeleng Khune: I Don’t Blame Them For Hammering Us

By Soccer Laduma - Oct 04, 2017 11:47 AM

Bafana Bafana international, Itumeleng Khune, says that he doesn’t blame the South African public for hammering the national team as they are expected to deliver results.

Head Coach Stuart Baxter’s side suffered back-to-back defeats to Cape Verde in the 2018 FIFA World qualifiers and adding to the wounds of the national team, Bafana will now have to replay their previous fixture against Senegal which took place last year, November, with the national team sitting right at the bottom of the group and hanging on to just a point.

Bafana will come up against a Burkina Faso side who is currently top of Group D with six points and eager to hold on to their chance of qualifying for the prestigious competition set to take place in Russia next year.

However, Head Coach Baxter’s side believes that all hope is not lost and it is still mathematically possible to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, however, a tough task awaits the national team. Bafana will have to win all three of their upcoming encounters against Burkina Faso and Senegal and hope that their African rivals at the top drop points along the way.

Speaking to the South African Football Association’s official website, Khune is eager for the national team to get back to delivering positive results and get the full support of the country.

“What’s important is for us to apply a positive mind to the game, and it’s up to us to get a good result on Saturday so that we can get the full support of the country. When the results are not coming I don’t blame them (the public) for hammering us, we have to deliver. With the crop of players that we have, we are talented and sometimes we don’t realise it, so it’s important that we realise how talented we are and we need to move the country forward with some positive results,” the shot-stopper revealed.

Bafana will host Burkina Faso at the FNB Stadium on Saturday, October 07 in a must-win 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying encounter.

This country's empty promises is sickening. There's no way a South African football fan would think this spineless team would qualify for anything. SAFA is rotten

If Khune is between the poles then Bafana-Bafana must forget about win / qualifying for 2018 world cup finals in Russia . He has been there for more than a decade but failed for any tournament
