Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs’ super fan, Saddam Maake, says he will organise a march if Itumeleng Khune leaves for Mamelodi Sundowns or Orlando Pirates.

He began by showing his trust in the management despite the announcement that captain Tefu Mashamaite, Itumeleng Khune, Mandla Masango and Katlego Mphela were not to be awarded new contracts.

“Through supporting this club for 45 years I have learnt that we must not rely on individuals,” Saddam told Sport24.

“They are part of the family but they can come and go. Many players left us with pain but we continue. Today I have learnt a lot from the chairman in this regard.”

As a lifetime Amakhosi fan he has seen some of the best players leave the club during in the middle of their careers and he commented on which were the hardest to see go.

“I saw (Brian) Baloyi go and Jabu Pule (Mahlangu), but one of the worst was Punch Masenemela who left during his best years."

Initially Saddam was reluctant to comment on which of the current departures would hurt the most but as he started talking it was clear who he felt betrayed by.

“To me my number one surprise was Khune... If he moves to Sundowns or Pirates I have already said that I will arrange a march.”

The super fan, however, still has hope that the situation can change before Khune’s contract runs out.

“I want to advise Khune that before the end of the month he must think twice and remember what happened to the other players who left. Sometimes the money can make a u-turn on you.”
