Khune: Kaizer Chiefs have worked hard to be the double champions

Chiefs skipper Khune believes his teammates deserved to be the double champions after a long season of hard work following their Nedbank Cup triumph over United in Durban

Kaizer Chiefs captain and goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune believes that they deserved to be the Nedbank Cup champions following their 1-0 victory over SuperSport United on Saturday afternoon.

Khune said that Chiefs players have worked hard to live up to the club’s slogan of reclaiming the glory this season, but thanked the AmaKhosi faithful for their undying support.

“It’s been a long season, but at least we have something to show for it. We are the double champions,” said Khune after lifting his second trophy as Chiefs captain.

“I think we deserved to be the double champions. We really worked hard throughout the season, but credit must go to our supporters who have travelled with us everywhere we went in the country. They surely deserve to smile during the off-season,” he said.

The 25-year-old Bafana shot stopper admitted that AmaKhosi didn’t do well last season, but he believes that they have turned the tables with the two trophies this season.

Khune wants Chiefs players to work even harder to defend their two titles next season, as he understands that it is going to be a challenging season for them.

“Last season we did not rise to the occasion, but I think this season the glory has been reclaimed. We deserve to be happy going into the off-season and I think we can come back geared up to defend our championships,” added Khune.
