Cape Town - Itumeleng Khune admits that it feels good to be wearing Kaizer Chiefs colours again after starting against Chippa United.
According to the Kaizer Chiefs website, recalls running through the tunnel at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium as they prepared for their Chippa encounter.
“It is a pleasure to don the gold and black of Chiefs. It is always a great feeling for any player to be back on the field,” Khune said.
“Running through the tunnel and to smell the pitch grass is like opening your office door. We spend most of our time on the pitch; it's like an office for us.
“The welcome from the stands was warm hence I felt comfortable during the match. We always want to reward the supporters."
Khune pulled off some of his trademark saves, especially in the dying minutes of the match played in front of a near capacity crowd. The game however ended 0-0.
“We are happy we collected a point," continues Khune.
“We have to work hard to match the club success of the past. We played well as a team.
“We were unfortunate to draw the match. We will have to double our efforts going forward.
“It is all about the teamwork. Chiefs is not about individual performances.
“I'm happy to be back in the team and to start with a clean sheet is encouraging.”
