Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has issued a public apology for his statements made on Twitter on Thursday night.

The Amakhosi 'keeper was sent off for two bookable offences – first for time-wasting and then for showing dissent at the decision – in the dying minutes of his side's 1-0 Absa Premiership victory over AmaZulu at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Post-match Khune took to social media to complain about the referee, Phillip Tinyane, tweeting: “@OfficialPSL but I did nothing wrong.u guys need to take action against this poor referees.

“Its about time action is taken against this referees by  @OfficialPSL. They've been very poor since beginning of the season.

“Its unfair how we are painted bad for our actions on de field but we are provoked by these referees, can call me names but I stand 4 what's right.”

However, less than 24 hours later, Khune took to Instagram to apologise for his outburst.

"To the football fraternity, my Family,Friends,Teammates and Fans. No words can validate my careless statements on social media yesterday. All I have now are apologies for my choice of words which were not appropriate," he said.

Kaizer Chiefs opened up a 10-point lead atop the standings with five matches remaining, thanks to a goal by Bernard Parker in the 18th minute.
