2015-03-27 14:12

Cape Town - Itumeleng Khune admits he cannot rule out leaving Kaizer Chiefs for another club in the Premiership, but insists his first preference would be a move to Europe.

The South Africa international is currently in the final few months of his deal at Naturena, although talks over a new contract have been open for some time.

However, nothing has yet been agreed by the two parties, leaving Khune's future open for debate, and the 'keeper admits that in football, anything is possible.

"I wouldn't say [joining a rival team] is not an option, but I wouldn't want to entertain other clubs more because I am still contracted to Kaizer Chiefs," Khune told KickOff.

"Obviously [in order of preference] it is Chiefs then Europe, but if that doesn't materialise then I will have to consider other options.

"But I liked what Oupa Manyisa said... 'football is business'. I think it is about time footballers tell the truth."

The 27-year-old goalkeeper has 220 caps to his name at the Amakhosi since taking the role as number one goalkeeper at the club in the 2007/2008 season.

      PLEASE Khune, just stay away from Pirates! We don't want rejects at our proud club.

    Khune will one day look in disbelief as to why he never went overseas. There was a time when he would have walked into any European big club. When Man U was here I was secretly hoping for the sake of Bafana Bafana that he would impress Alex Ferguson since Edwin van der Sar's playing days were coming to an end. Ferguson was impressed by his ball distribution but in his second he conceded far too many goals which were not his fault. Maybe he might still go, who knows.

U even deserve to play overseas if something comes out from overseas grab it my brother but your alter must be Pirates.

    At 27 Khune is growing not younger, he should opt for a better offer for his livelyhood.

      Paul Vuma - 2015-03-27 16:23

      Goalkeepers have lengthier carriers than outfield players

  • Mmatlou Maepa - 2015-03-27 16:04

    Chiefs must ship out this mercenary once his contract expires don't think we are short in the posts the only place in need of beef up is upfront

    Yeah man get outta SA and go show Europe why you're Mzanzis number 1. Would be ideal if he went to the EPL but La Liga and Bundasliga would be just fine. Maybe even the French league

  • Caswell Bjalane - 2015-03-27 16:05

    Maybe he should consider joining the gold-digging crowd at Chloorkoop.
