Khune: Kaizer Chiefs are going to Durban to win the Nedbank Cup

Chiefs captain Itumeleng Khune tells Goal about the factors that led to their four-game winless streak as the PSL champions prepare for the Nedbank Cup final

Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has told Goal that there are several factors that contributed to their winless streak in the last four games of the season.

Khune believes the pressure that comes with being on top of the log from the beginning of the season got to his teammates and also the fatigue, but said that he doesn’t use that as an excuse.

“I think there are number of factors that played a role in us not winning those games. I think the pressure is also one of them. Fatigue is also there, but I am not using it as an excuse,” Khune told Goal.

The AmaKhosi skipper is however, certain that the team will come to the party in the Nedbank Cup final against SuperSport United on Saturday afternoon.

He believes that the Nedbank Cup victory will complete a perfect season for him as a player and the entire AmaKhosi family.

“Our focus is now on the Nedbank Cup and I am sure that we are going to come back with it. I am sure my teammates will want to finish the season on a high after those four terrible games,” he said.

“However, we are not going to this game thinking about the last four or five games that we didn’t win, but we are going to Durban thinking about winning the trophy,” added Khune.
