Despite Kaizer Chiefs failure of reaching the MTN 8 final, captain Itumeleng Khune has expressed his gratitude to the fans and the management of the club

Speaking to the Chiefs official club website, Khune expressed his disappointment on behalf of his teammates following their MTN 8 semifinal exit at the hands of their rivals Orlando Pirates.
 
“We are fortunate to have the kind of leadership we have at the club. The coach (Stuart Baxter), Chairman (Kaizer Motaung) and Football Manager (Bobby Motaung) spoke to us after the game. They motivated us to hold our heads high.
 
“The leadership reminded us that losing the MTN8 is not the end and there are other trophies to contest for this season (referring to TKO, Nedbank Cup, Absa Premiership and Caf Champions League). The team played their hearts out. We gave Pirates a tough time and throughout the game we showed character,” said Khune.

We acknowledge their patience and appreciate that they continue to rally behind the team. We are still hungry for success and we want to achieve more accolades going forward,” he said.
