New Amakhosi Stopper: Khune Is My Hero!

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?
