Khune: It’s not about the Khune brothers, but the entire Kaizer Chiefs team

Chiefs captain Itumeleng Khune tells that Saturday’s Nedbank Cup semifinal is not a platform for him and his brother Lucky to prove who the best player is

Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has told that they know what to expect from United FC as both teams will fight for a place in the final of this year’s Nedbank Cup.

Khune believes that United FC are a good team and that they take their chances very well, but he is certain that AmaKhosi have enough experience to subdue their opponents for the entire 90 minutes.

“They will want to put the ball on the ground. They are a good team that plays a patient football and they their opportunities,” Khune told

“I think we just have to guard on their counter attacks, but we are experienced enough to contain them for 90 minutes,” he said.

The AmaKhosi skipper revealed that he is not thinking about his brother and former teammate Lucky Khune who is currently playing for the NFD side.

He believes that they need to put the interest of their respective teams before theirs, but he doesn’t want to concede a goal on Saturday.   

“For me it’s not all about my younger brother. I mean, it’s Kaizer Chiefs against United FC and not Khune against Khune, but it will be very important for me to keep a clean sheet and not thinking about what Lucky could do,” added Khune.
