Johannesburg -  Kaizer Chiefs captain and Premier Soccer League Footballer of the Year, Itumeleng Khune, will work on his temper over the next few weeks.

According to the Sowetan website, Khune's temper and his over-the-top gamesmanship has often led to him being cautioned by referees and he was handed a one-match suspension during Amakhosi's championship-winning season.

"My biggest challenge is to try and defend all these awards next season. I need to control my temper a bit more because it has been the (big) talk in South Africa. Everywhere I go people say to me I need to control my temper on the field," said Khune.

At the weekend, after pocketing R575 000 in prize money from all the accolades, Khune said his progress could be tainted by the antics.
