Fans React After Yet Another Khune Injury Setback

Kaizer Chiefs have been dealt yet another blow with the news that goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune is set to be sidelined for a long period following a groin injury.

Fans have reacted reacted and shared their views on Mzansi's number one.

Khune’s latest injury is his second in a period of a few months, following a shoulder injury that kept him sidelined for a large chunk of last season.

As a result, SL Supporter @So-Mathabo-KBY feels that these injuries could be an indication that the 32-year-old should consider hanging up his gloves.  

“From 'Country's Number 1' to Mr Speedy Recovery...The time has come for him to call it quits, his bones can't take it anymore, age has caught up with him.”

On the contrary, SL Reader @Soccerstyle feels that the Ventersdorp-born shot-stopper still has a lot to offer to the local game and highlighted the fact that the career span of goalkeepers are longer than that of in-field players.

I do not believe Khune should even be considering calling it quits now, still far too early for a goalkeeper. Goal minders are known to play well into their late thirties, early forties. However, KC should rest him until he fully recovers. Like him or not, he is one of our best, very consistent than most and his distribution skills are incomparable. Wish him a speedy recovery, let alone that (I) am not a KC fan, but a fan of the beautiful game.”

In Khune’s considerable absence, Nigerian international Daniel Akpeyi has deputised astutely. The former Chippa United man has proved more than capable whenever he was called upon.

Therefore, SL Supporter @Nemusunda86 feels that Akpeyi should retain his place until Khune is fully fit.

Daniel Akpeyi is doing fine let's leave Itu until he is fully fit and stop forcing him.”

 

Do you think Khune’s latest injury could derail Chiefs this season?
