Khune: Never write off Chiefs

2012-08-23 11:48

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs captain Itumeleng Khune has expressed his delight following his team's 2-1 victory over Mamelodi Sundowns at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday night.

The Bafana Bafana number one feels Amakhosi were considered underdogs prior to the match on the basis that they lost 4-1 to Sundowns earlier this month in the MTN8 quarterfinals, but he cautioned that you can never write off Chiefs.

"Firstly, I think it was a great match for the fans and I'm sure they enjoyed it," he told Football411.

"People simply wrote us off heading into this match because Sundowns beat us so easy in the MTN8 but we knew this was our opportunity to redeem ourselves.

"I don't think you can ever write off a big team like Chiefs and I must say that credit must go to the whole team for coming out and fighting for the jersey," Khune added.

Meanwhile, Sundowns' goal on the night, which was initially credited as an own-goal by Khune, has in fact been awarded to Clayton Daniels on the official PSL match report.

Chiefs will next be in action against Free State Stars at the Charles Mopeli Stadium on September 1.

      im afraid the points, losses and draws from the start will matter when u finish...its all about points...wins/ all counts at the end...thats why at times goal difference ditermines who wins the all counts

    @Adore, it's not how you start, true. But starting well is 100% acceptable!

    gordon must just withdraw khune and their other players from doing duty for bafanabafana until their fraud case is completed

      @abrammothibedi Your stupidy knows no boundries; your are simply incorrigible. Please; the next time you comment, just stick to the topic at hand for the sake of relevance. Another thing, do yourself a favour by avoiding anything that is reported about Amakhosi because obviously it tears you apart and that will lend you in hospital for a triple heart bypass. We shall never hate Sundowns and never be jealous about its achievements because we fully understand that they are in the PSL to compete against all teams to be the very best they can be just like all the others 15 teams. See; like I said yesterday "we do understand football just like you the selftitled experts".

    Abrammathibedi.abram: I suspect u r from the opposition, Kaizer Chiefs never committed any crime but their official is SUSPECTED to have done so and until proven guilty by the court of law, the official will remain innocent.
