Khune Breached As Chiefs’ Title Hopes Dealt Hammer Blow

Khune Breached As Chiefs’ Title Hopes Dealt Hammer Blow

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 04, 2018 04:36 PM
Itumeleng Khune was beaten three times for the first time in nearly two years as Kaizer Chiefs went down 3-1 to Orlando Pirates, with the shot-stopper unable to lead them to victory.
 
Khune has been back to his best this season for the Amakhosi, playing a major role in trying to help them get back to winning ways after two and a half barren seasons.
 
He was, however, powerless to stop the Buccaneers at FNB Stadium on Saturday, with the club becoming the first to put three past him since Mamelodi Sundowns did so back in April 2016.
 
Luvuyo Memela bagged a brace yesterday as the second-half substitute led Milutin Sredojevic’s side to three points, and became the first player to do so against Khune since Ndumiso Mabena almost exactly two years ago today.
 
Chiefs now find themselves in fifth place and eight points behind league leaders, Mamelodi Sundowns, with seven games left to play, as Memela’s brace effectively put an end to the slim title ambitions.
 
Steve Komphela’s Glamour Boys now have to take a long look at the Nedbank Cup if they’re to make sure that their coach’s three-year stay doesn’t come to an end without a single piece of silverware.

Khne worked so hard alone as if he owns Kaizer Chiefs.

We must be honest with our team situation in that derby. If Pirates was really lucky on the day, they could have beaten us by 6-0. Itu and goal post helped us a lot. We had possession , not using it to create and finish. We lack penetration, we play infront of their defence. Our corner kicks are not well rehearsed like was the case under Baxter.

Khune is the best. If it was not him, it was going to end very very bad. Up the bucs.

The Pie's were at their best and need to be commended, there was nothing Khune could have done to prevent the goals because his backline was leaking. However he played a blinder to prevent more goals.

I still salute Khune for denying pirate more goals.For me,the boy was outstanding on this last Serb.He is our really Mzansi's number 1.I even thank the crossbar that came to his rescue.That is why he stand being our best keeper ever,because he can share his mind with the cross bass too.I respect you boy.#UP THE BUCS.

@Flipping lyf He is conceding less because of Kompela's defending tactics.

@Andybucs... What can he show Mzansi that he is the best. Being the best comes with accolades, Khune has nothing at Club and National level. There was time I rated high but now aooowa he is normal like the rest of them. He is the best but stoll playing at Mzansi???

@ZZ2 you know it yourself. If uou are happy you praise the same Khune but now that you are sad you say it is his job. I do the same. I praise him. He is behind your team's doing well. The truth remains he is carrying your team on his shoulders. It may not sound good to you but it is the truth you also know.

Chiefs must thank Khune really. He single handedly put them in a respectable position on the log. Judging by few goals they've scored this season and his brilliance in goals it shows he is one that is carrying Chiefs on his shoulders.
