Itumeleng Khune made a promise to retire at Kaizer Chiefs

Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has expressed his desire to retire at Naturena

Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune’s latest pronouncement will make every Kaizer Chiefs fan jump for joy.

The 29-year-old is one of the Soweto giants' academy products having been promoted to the first team back in 2004.

In an interview with fellow Amakhosi veteran Simphiwe Tshabalala, the goalkeeper expressed his gratefulness towards Chiefs.

The flamboyant goalkeeper also vowed to keep his promise and end his career at Naturena.

"It's been a special journey for me. If I have to combine all the years; five years with the development squad, 13 years with the first team, so you can see it's a great, great milestone," Khune said on the club’s official YouTube channel.

“I made a promise to the KC [Kaizer Chiefs] faithful, the chairman and everyone at the club and this is where I want to retire”.

Khune left Chiefs in 2015 after refusing to renew his contract. The Ventersdorp-born keeper, however, made a subsequent U-turn and re-joined the club a month later.

He would continue to be an integral part of the Chiefs setup, being renamed captain for the 2016/2017 campaign.

The Bafana number one is highly regarded as one of the best goalkeepers on the continent.
