Former South Africa goalkeeper Mark Anderson has described Itumeleng Khune as the best goalkeeper in South Africa.
Anderson feels Chiefs have taken long to find another top keeper
Former Sundowns shot stopper thinks Khune still the best in SA
Khune has been criticised after recent errors & Chiefs’ bad form
The goalkeeper has had an extended stay in the team this season, managing eight appearances in the PSL, after seeing very little action in 2021-22, as Bruce Bvuma and Brandon Petersen were preferred ahead of him.
WHAT DID HE SAY? “I really feel sorry for Itumeleng Khune,” Anderson said on Robert Marawa’s SowetanLive show. “He is definitely the best in the country. I feel sorry for him, I just can’t understand why Kaizer Chiefs hasn’t found a substitute goalkeeper who has the same consistency.”
His stint in the team has, however, coincided with Chiefs’ poor run of form as they sit fifth on the table with 24 points, 19 behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, and he has not helped his case with some high-profile howlers.
Khune has been the subject of criticism from a section of Kaizer Chiefs fans with some calling for him to be dropped, or retire altogether, following his errors in the Glamour Boys’ 4-0 drubbing by AmaZulu last weekend.
