New Amakhosi Stopper: Khune Is My Hero!

Virgil Vries Has Spoken About Joining Kaizer Chiefs

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 28, 2018 08:51 AM
Kaizer Chiefs’ latest signing, Virgil Vries, has heaped praise on his new teammate, Itumeleng Khune, calling the Bafana Bafana international a ‘hero’.
 
Vries joined the Glamour Boys this week on a three-year deal, and he now begins the process of trying to force his way past Khune and into the starting XI. 
 
 
The 29-year-old played 20 Absa Premiership games for Baroka last season before being released at the end of the season, and he says that he’s looking forward to being in a new environment at Naturena.
 
He told the club’s official website, “Itumeleng Khune is my hero. I have always been following his career. He’s my role model. It’s a great opportunity to work with him. We will work hard and push each other for the better of the club… It’s like a dream come true.
 
“Rowen (Fernandez) was the first to kick the ball out with a half-volley. But Itu really mastered it. I am great at doing that half volley as well, I am breathing down Itu’s neck.”
 
Do you think Vries can get past Khune as Chiefs’ number one?

He who says Khune is overrated is caught in unjustified hatred of the highest order. Sometimes we need to forget which team do we support and be objective. For example, there are supporters lying to themselves about Billiat being a cow just because he is now at Naturena. I am a Chiefs supporter but can attest to the fact that Percy Tau is the best South African infield player at the moment. On the same breath, Itu Khune is by far the best goalkeeper and his heroics saved Chiefs in the previous campaign. As for Virgil Vries, he is a good goalkeeper who stabilised Baroka FC last season and with Itu injury prone, Vries is a capable deputy just like Arthur Bartman was in 2009/10/11. At 29, Vries is matured to handle the pressure as-and-when given an opportunity.

Yeah I can feel your hurting DTChappyRATbyBIRTh. And guess who upset you? Bobby Motaung because he signed Khama right under your noses. He is not my favorite manager but this time he outdid himself and now all he need to do is get us Baxter and talent Chawapiwa. I don't rate Vries that much but at least has some professional back round.Hey hey Chiefs are useless they cant afford big name players where? Chiefs don't just rush and break the bank for a human being and guess what Pitso is enjoying his humble dry pie now. Tau is another one who will be frustrated by Pitso because he thinks he own all Sunflops players.

What a downgrade from a national goal keeper to a average keeper. I am sure he has settled for anything at Chiefs

Thanks for signing this goal keeper. Phela Ngobe is in good form so coming back to our team okwamanje was not good idea. We need to see u more playing for our nationals team. Giving Itu a strong competition. So on club level u will be on the bench if u play for the same team

Soccerladuma and mzanzi media are at fault by covering up for Khune and making us think he's mzanzi Savior, fact is other goalkeepers didn't get a chance to play for bafana, khune has failed dismally at national level and whether you like him or not it won't change that khune is overrated

@K1 goat who has 7 caps? Meyiwa? He played all the qualifying games for the African nations cup and eventually went there to play in the African nations cup, he played friendly games between the two competitions, I can see that you don't know anything about soccer, all you are good at is to gloat and oveerate under archivers like khune, you know as well that khune had conceded more than 160 goals in less than 100 games but you want to justify that, let's give Bvuma a chance maybe he won't concede in each and every game he plays for bafana like the overrated khune does

No team in Europe will associate itself with an overrated cow like khune, he had cost us (bafana) in many games with stupid mistakes, it his high time we give young upcoming keepers a chance to play, the likes of Ronwen Williams, and that Ajax keeper, the likes of Bvuma must get an opportunity to play for bafana because Khune has failed us dismally
