Bobby and I get along well - Khune

Cape Town - Itumeleng Khune has attempted to rubbish all rumours of a feud between himself and Kaizer Chiefs football manager, Bobby Motaung.

Khune recently put pen to paper to re-join last season's PSL and MTN8 Cup winners after failing to find a new club during the off season.

The 28-year-old goalkeeper decided to make u-turn back to his childhood club which he joined as a youth academy player at age 13. 

Sport24 reported in April 2015 that Amakhosi denied that there was any dispute between the two individuals following Chiefs’ PSL celebrations but speculation has continued despite Chiefs releasing a statement rubbishing reports of a bust-up between the star player and the club official.

The Bafana Bafana goalkeeper has now attempted to draw a line under the issue.

Khune says that he has “absolute respect” for Motaung and has been in the industry too long to let “such hogwash” get to him, according to Soccer Laduma.

“I have absolute respect for Bobby and what he has done at Chiefs. He is my boss and if I have issues with him, I wouldn’t hesitate to face him,” said Khune.

“I have been in this industry for a while now and I have learned to ignore such hogwash. Bobby and I get along well and we respect each other.”
