Itumeleng Khune says he will retire at Kaizer Chiefs and is happy to be club captain if he’s no longer the regular goalkeeper.
“I will never entertain that I should leave the club. I will never go anywhere. I’m a ‘Khosi for Life’,” the 35-year-old said at the DStv Premiership’s 2022-23 preseason launch at the SuperSport studios in Randburg on Thursday.
“I’ve been given an opportunity from the development to the senior side. I’ve been given the responsibility of captaining the biggest club on the continent, so I wouldn’t be entertaining ideas that I would like to leave the club in the future.”
Khune said uppermost in his mind is to continue to fight for the No 1 jersey at Naturena under new coach and former teammate Arthur Zwane.
“It’s not going to be easy,” he said. “There’s Bruce Bvuma, the future Bafana Bafana No 1. There’s Brandon Petersen also knocking on the Bafana door, and I’ve been there [Bafana].
