Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune is a natural leader.
His presence whether at the national team or at club level always brings joy to many football fans in the country. He is simply the best on the continent with his accuracy and world-class ball distribution.
Khune's return to the national team came at the right moment when he was needed the most as the team captain Thulan 'Hlatshwayo was out due to injury. He's a real leader as he leads by example and is very vocal. That’s exactly what was needed for the team when he was not available for selection.
The Spider Kid was one of the Bafana players who stood out and made sure that we claim victory against the unpredictable Stallions of Burkina Fasowho were ambushed by his excellent ball distribution.
The two goal kicks he accurately laid out to Andile Jali and Percy Tau were excellent and will be imprinted in our memories for a long time.
