Cape Town - Kaizer
Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has revealed there is plenty more he
wishes to achieve in the game, just as Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel
Messi keep striving for more.
Messi, who has won five Ballon d'Or awards, and Ronaldo, who has
scooped the accolade for times, are lauded for their ability to maintain
a high level of consistency in their performance year after year.
As such, Khune takes the view that he has to keep pushing for higher levels in his own game for club and country.
The 30-year-old has already produced Man-of-the-Match displays for
Amakhosi in 2017/18, though it seems clear he is not willing to rest on
his laurels in the near future.
He told Sowetan Live: "Yes, you mentioned that I've won
everything on offer (on the local scene) but if Messi can win five
Ballon d'Ors and if Ronaldo can go win four, who am I to be satisfied?
"I can't relax. As long as I'm still given an opportunity to play
here at Chiefs and Bafana, I will always give it my all. I just set
myself another goal, to play until I'm 40."
