“Chiefs Defence Letting Khune Down” – Reader’s Voice

Default

Mzansi's finest and Kaizer Chiefs’ number one goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune, is currently finding it difficult to keep a clean sheet for his team. However, that could be caused by poor defending.

We all know that you can have a quality goal keeper, but, when the midfielders and defenders are not consistent, the goalkeeper suffers. Those who do not understand football will say that Khune has lost his brilliance.

But truth is that, with Khune between the posts, positive results are possible and therefore he should not be judged by recent form because Chiefs players are currently trying to find their feet.

Clean sheets or not, Khune is the best goalkeeper to be seen in South Africa for a very long time. His accolades can be testament to that.

Furthermore, the absence of Brilliant Khuzwayo is also playing a role in to Khune's lack of form, knowing that, if Khuzwayo was fit, he would have no choice but to perform due to the competition. However, that was not going change the situation, because of the poor defending by the back four, which has ultimately cost Chiefs far too many points.

Having said that, what do you make of the statement above?

fact is people have their favourate players and they are not objective and judgmental when those players are at fault. when Bvuma conceded goals it was because of him and his lack of experience, when khune concedes goals its the defence

Mr Editor I somehow disagree with you. As you said, "you can have a quality goal keeper, but, when the midfielders and defenders are not consistent, the goalkeeper suffers." same thing can be said about the goalkeeper, if the defenders are good and the goalkeeper is not then... I watched all the late goals we conceded in our last 5 matches over and over and spotted that they all came from crosses. You know and I know that Itu as good as he is, is struggling a lot with crosses. He should have went out to safe those ball in the 16 area. Strikers scored 2 meters from his poles. So do you blame defence for that? and he always goes and pulls back.

mxm khune was a good goalkeeper he lost his form after his break up with Minnie Dlamini. we all know he hides behind injuries khune plays 15-18 games at most for the past 3 seasons yet in those games he concedes more goals than his 2 sub goalies.

The statement is correct Khune can not do it all he needs the defense to protect him and not pull out on challenges like Cardoso did in the Arrows.

Khune ask supporters:, Hey guys should I die for defenders to kept on letting me down?, supporters reply: No, it is not your fault, this players deserve to die not you, you are Khune wethu don't worry. Mathoho ask supporters: Should I die for Khune to keep on letting goals in?', supporters reply: Yes, you deserve to die, Khune is our great goalkeeper an our mzansi's number one, he don't deserve to die, you're the most culprit behind those goals he conceded. Mathoho reply: Oops, how so? Phela you guys said he is mzansi's number one, if the ball passed me I prefer him to not let the ball pass him and find the back of the net as he is the best Im weak!. Supporters reply: hey don't talk too much, please leave our team, we don't need you no more, you costing us. Mathoho reply : Ok, I will leave and see if he(Khune) will stop conceding goals. Kkkkkkkkk phosho e tlaba ya mang gona mo! Lol.

Defenders die for Khune at Chiefs, at Pirates goalkeepers die for defenders, At Sundowns there is no bemoan but they failed to lift Psl trophy, how so? Mmmm I don't get it.

Mxm.. defenders have had their blunders that costed the team, but truth be told, khune's fitness needs to be questioned. I can clearly recall during Masango's penalty in the nedbank shootout, you could see that the reflexes were compromised by the weight. Wenzani when the likes of Shabba are sweating on the trendmil
