Fact is, Kaizer Chiefs’ Itumeleng Khune is not getting any younger. However, we are talking about a goalkeeper here and we all know how long they can keep going.
WHEN WAS HIS AMAKHOSI DEBUT?
Do you all still remember his debut before he remarkably displaced the splendid but underrated Emile Baron? It was the year 2007 when Baron was injured. The then coach Muhsin Ertugral put all his trust in the kid from Ventersdorp.
He was 20 and nobody could imagine Itumeleng Khune was set to be a great Amakhosi icon. Has he surpassed Doctor Khumalo? Hhhm, that’s a story for another day
Kaizer Chiefs’ Khune is now 34 years of age and naturally, his retirement will tend to enter conversations.

KAIZER CHIEFS’ ITUMELENG KHUNE ADDRESSES HIS RETIREMENT SUGGESTION
After one supporter posted a tweet on the Twitter platform about Khune’s future, the former Bafana Bafana star was quick to send out a firm reply.
The Twitter user with the handle @oyama_yaya simply imagined how emotional it would be to witness Kaizer Chiefs’ Khune retire one day.
“Khune deserves a farewell match. I’ll shed tears when he retires,” he said.
The legendary goalkeeper, who is sometimes known as “Mzansi’s number one,” responded with a short but firm statement. The veteran suggested that the idea is still a distant possibility.
“I’m not going to retire anytime soon Fam,” Khune said before adding a wink and praying hands emojis.
