Kaizer Chiefs captain Itumeleng Khune, who overcame back
problems, has led the team to two wins in a row and an overall five game
unbeaten run which sees Amakhosi in second spot, one point behind Cape Town
City on 30 points in the Premiership standings.
Spiderkid, as he is affectionately know, opted to take the
spotlight away from himself and instead heap praise on his “resilient and
driven” team-mates following their impressive 2-1 away win over Maritzburg
United on Saturday evening, something the team has not achieved since 2009.
And Khune believes that the team is building a winning
mentality as we approach the business end of the Premiership campaign.
"Winning games is something we have worked hard for as a
team and everyone in the team deserves all the praise and credit. It’s not a
one man show, because we are all working hard on ourselves and it’s showing," Khune
said on the club’s website.
"As players we have been tough mentally, especially during
the difficult period earlier on in the season and that togetherness has allowed
us to enjoy this period as a team where we are five games unbeaten.
"Now we want to achieve more as a team and continue with the
good run of winning and the mentality is showing in every aspect of our game
which is crucial at this stage of the season.
"We are at a point where we are very competitive; we’re
doing what the coaching staff is asking from us to do. And we’re trying to do
it in the proper fashion. Some of the football we have played has been good to
see. The confidence is high."
