The Amakhosi shot-stopper was beaten three times by the Chilli Boys – firstly by Thabo Rakhale, then by Mxolisi Macuphu and lastly by Edward Manqele – in a 3-0 defeat at FNB Stadium on Saturday night, putting another nail in Chiefs’ coffin with regards to their title hopes.
It is only the eighth time in his career with the Glamour Boys that Khune has been beaten three times in one game, and just the second time that he has been on the receiving end of a defeat of three goals.
You have to go all the way back to February 2009 to find the last Absa Premiership game in which Khune lost by three goals, with his side being beaten 3-0 by the eventual champions, SuperSport United, thanks to goals from Brent Carelse, Elias Pelembe and Morgan Gould.
Mamelodi Sundowns remain the only team to have put four past Khune – they did so in the 2012 MTN8 in a 4-1 win – but Chippa joined the likes of SuperSport, Orlando Pirates and Ajax Cape Town to have also scored three against him.
