Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper William Shongwe says that Itumeleng Khune needs to swallow his pride and return to Naturena.
Spiderkid’s contract expired at the end of June and refused to extend his deal with Amakhosi.
According to KickOff, Shongwe admits that the 28-year-old should “humble himself” and accept the offer Amakhosi has tabled for him.
“Khune doesn’t have the bargaining power he once had.He has bounced off from the deal he was hoping to get,” said Shongwe.
“It will be wise for him to humble himself and face up to the situation. It won’t be a bad idea to swallow his pride and go with cap in hand to get his job back at Kaizer Chiefs.”
“All this will be forgotten if he starts playing again and he shows that he is still a great goalkeeper,” he adds.
Last week Sport24 reported that Khune was spotted at Chiefs' training ground on Thursday (July 23) morning as talks between the goalkeeper and the Motaungs continue. (Read full story HERE)
In the same week, news also surfaced that if Amakhosi lure Khune back to Naturena, it will cost the Sowetan giants a cool R7.8m a year.
Meanwhile, Khune remains active during the off-season as he awaits his next move. The Bafana Bafana international said, "I go to gym a lot and whoever comes and asks for my services, I'll be ready. It's part of the game - I guess I just have to be strong with the situation I'm facing right now, but something will come up in the coming weeks."
