Veteran goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi has sent an inspiring message to Kaizer Chiefs’ Itumeleng Khune ahead of the new season.

With Khune hoping to revive his career in the new season under Arthur Zwane and his technical team, after failing to make a single league appearance last season, Akpeyi believes that the ex-Mzansi’s number one still has what it takes to don the Amakhosi jersey.

“The advantage that goalkeepers have more than the infield players is that they can play to their 40s. They can play up to 42, 43 and so on, as long as you can take care of your body and looking after yourself. For example, (Gianluigi) Buffon is 44 now and he still plays in a top club. He has recently renewed his contract (in February) by two more years. The former Egyptian national team goalkeeper (Essam El Hadary), who is the national team goalkeeper coach now, retired at 45. (Iker) Casillas and a lot of others have gone on and on and it’s just how you take care of yourself. For me, it is all about your belief and your work ethic,” said Akpeyi.

“I think he (Khune) sees himself like that, that he can still give to the game and looking at the things that he’s trying to put in place and the things he’s trying to do, it shows that he believes he still has a lot to offer. I just pray that injury doesn’t cut him off. If the team decides to make him a coach and all of that at some stage, I don’t think that will be bad either because he has got all the qualities,” the Nigerian international added.
