Kaizer Chiefs captain Itumeleng Khune has sent out a strong message to his fellow goalkeepers that he is back to fight for the number one jersey at the club.

Khune, the longest serving member in the Chiefs squad, has unsurprisingly been named the club’s skipper for the 2022/23 season.

However, the Ventersdorp-born star’s lack of game-time over the last three seasons has seen him fall down the pecking order at the club - but ‘Mzansi’s finest’ has vowed to challenge both Bruce Bvuma and Brandon Peterson to reclaim the Chiefs number one jersey.

“I just have to go out there and fight for the number one spot. It is not going to be easy there’s Bruce Bvuma, who is a future Bafana Bafana number one, there’s Brandon Peterson who is also knocking on the Bafana door and I’ve been there, and we keep on learning a lot from each other,” Khune told journalists at the DStv Premiership launch.

“The competition is stiff and tight so we just want to give coach Arthur [Zwane] and coach Dillon [Sheppard] a good headache because already we have played a couple of friendlies and all of us were able to share a number of minutes. Obviously, for us, we had to sit down with the goalkeeper coaches and compare our stats from three seasons ago. We have been conceding (many) goals so now its important that we concede less and keep more clean sheets and so far so good,” he said.

Over the last three seasons, the 35-year-old has made a combined 25 appearances under various Chiefs coaches, his lowest tally since taking over the Amakhosi number one jersey in the 2007/28 season.
