Khune Praises Team Spirit

Upon receiving his ‘man of the match’ award for his clean sheet in Kaizer Chiefs’ 1-0 win against MP Black Aces on Tuesday night, Itumeleng Khune praised his side’s team spirit and attributed the accolade to them.

“Credit must go to all the players,” said Khune.

“I think playing at home you are always under pressure to deliver and I think we all deserve ‘man of the match’ because we all fought until the end and even on the bench you could see the support and passion that they were giving to the rest of the guys on the field.

“We are one big family and I dedicate this ‘man of the match’ to them and to the supporters too.”

Turning his attention to the game, the goalkeeper admitted it was a tough match but they deserved the win.

“We had them in the first half, we created so many opportunities which we couldn’t convert and Aces almost had us in the second half because we just decided to stay back and contain them, but they kept coming,” added Khune.

“They have two good play makers, (Thanduyise) Khuboni and (Mpho) Matsi i. They were the ones connecting with the strikers with the likes of (Collins) Mbesuma. With his body he could turn our defenders, but we managed to stand firm and kept a clean sheet.”

Looking ahead to the Soweto Derby against Orlando Pirates, Khune says they will start prepping from Wednesday.

“We needed to take care of this game first. Our focus was here, so now we can start preparing for Saturday,” continued Khune.

“It’s a big one, the country is coming to a stand-still, everyone will be watching, so we cannot afford to disappoint.

“It will be our home game again so hopefully things will go our way and we will collect another three points.”
