Itumeleng Khune of Kaizer Chiefs is rumored to have declined a contract with the team. The veteran goalkeeper for Amakhosi has recently come under intense scrutiny.
He was relieved of his captaincy and suspended from all club activities after it was alleged that he had consumed alcohol during training.
The 36-year-old was given a one-year contract offer prior to the current campaign, but it was with the understanding that he would hang up his mitts after.
The South African international was supposed to serve as the team’s representative and collaborate closely with the technical staff in preparation for eventually taking over as goalkeeping coach.
Khune has previously stated that he is willing to leave the Chiefs in order to play, but he still has faith in his ability to play.
The legendary player has reportedly turned down the Chiefs’ offer to hang up his cleats at the end of the season because he wants to keep playing.
It’s unlikely that Khune will ever play for the Naturena-based team again, despite his intense wish to salvage his career. Thus jeopardizing both his career at the Chiefs and his prospects of ever playing football again.
