Goal.com spoke with Amakhosi captain Itumeleng Khune after being named the best player for the third quarter (Q-3) of the PSL season
Khune did not want to take credit despite being named the PSL’s outstanding player for the third quarter, as he dedicated his individual award to all the players.
“I always tell people that it is not about me, but the team (Chiefs). I believe I wouldn’t have been amongst the best if it wasn’t for my teammates. Hence, I dedicate this award to them,” Khune told Goal.com.
The Chiefs skipper said the players are not disappointed after dropping four vital points in their last two games, but believes their next league game against Moroka Swallows is a must win for them if they are to lift the PSL trophy.
“I think we fought hard to earn those points. So we are not disappointed at all, but we must win our next game to increase our chances of winning the league,” he said.
The Glamour Boys currently hold a seven-point lead over Platinum Stars at the top of the PSL table, but Khune has warned his teammates against complacency going into their last five games.
“We shouldn’t get carried away. There are five games left before the end of the season and anything can happen. We just have to keep working hard and keep collecting maximum points,” added Khune.
