According to the top local football publication, Kaizer Chiefs FC long serving player, Itumeleng Khune has finally said something after the latest rumours and reports about him going to Chiefs training while under the influence of alcohol.
Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune is said to have apologised profusely, after he was reported to have arrived at training drunk last week.
The former Bafana Bafana captain felt bad about what happened, a source has revealed. According to the informant, Khune penned an emotional message to everyone at the club, where he spoke about what led to him coming to training drunk.
The veteran keeper is said to be under suspension at Chiefs and he is due to appear before the club’s disciplinary committee.
“He knows that he disappointed a lot of people with what he did and he feels very bad about the whole situation,” said the source.
“There are lots of people who look up to him, especially young players at the club and for someone like him to do what he did was just unexpected. He has apologised to everyone, especially the players because he knows that he let them down as a senior player.
“He is apparently going through a lot, but that’s not an excuse to behave the way he did.
“He knows that he is supposed to be a good example on and off the field. There will be a big punishment coming for him, but he said he is ready to face anything.
“I just hope that he deals with whatever issues that he is facing because the club still needs him. So, now it’s all about waiting to hear from the disciplinary committee and to hear if there will be any further suspension, which I doubt will be the case.”
However, one of the match most influential Kaizer Chiefs FC known by the name of Man B has hit back and replied all those fans who are making fun on what Chiefs longest serving goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune did.
Few days ago, there were rumours on social media platforms revealing that Khune is facing the club’s suspension for allegedly going to training under the influence of alcohol. Speaking on his live video on Facebook, Man B started first by saying no one is bigger than Kaizer Chiefs FC. He said even the Motaung’e are not bigger than Chiefs, so if Khune is found guilty, the management must do whatever the decision they think will work good for the sake of the club.
Replying to those who are making fun of the latest Khune issues. He mentioned that when Chiefs is the agenda, even those who are deaf can hear and talk bad about Chiefs, and those who can’t talk, can talk and say bad bad things. He then reminded Mamelodi Sundowns FC fans that thier top midfielder Andile Jali also arrived at training while drunk. He also reminded Orlando Pirates FC fans that their striker Gabadihno Mhango was also a drunkard.
