Khune: Never write off Chiefs

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs captain Itumeleng Khune has expressed his delight following his team's 2-1 victory over Mamelodi Sundowns at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday night.

The Bafana Bafana number one feels Amakhosi were considered underdogs prior to the match on the basis that they lost 4-1 to Sundowns earlier this month in the MTN8 quarterfinals, but he cautioned that you can never write off Chiefs.

"Firstly, I think it was a great match for the fans and I'm sure they enjoyed it," he told Football411.

"People simply wrote us off heading into this match because Sundowns beat us so easy in the MTN8 but we knew this was our opportunity to redeem ourselves.

"I don't think you can ever write off a big team like Chiefs and I must say that credit must go to the whole team for coming out and fighting for the jersey," Khune added.

Meanwhile, Sundowns' goal on the night, which was initially credited as an own-goal by Khune, has in fact been awarded to Clayton Daniels on the official PSL match report.

Chiefs will next be in action against Free State Stars at the Charles Mopeli Stadium on September 1.
