Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates legend Marks Maponyane says that it would be a great decision for the Amakhosi if they ever consider taking goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune, back into the squad. 

He believes in the skills and qualities Khune has and how much he can mean to the team if he were to go back to Chiefs. 

“Let me tell you what I know when I spoke to Bobby in the week or late last week, they hadn’t heard from him (Khune) but then I believe at some point he has to make a decision,” he told Sport24

“Khune made a good decision to meet with Bobby, if indeed they’ve met because the window period is closing. “ 

“If they were to consider taking him back it will show a symbol of confidence that they have in him.  

“He is a quality keeper, in fact one of the best in the world. For me he is the best distributor of the ball. That is one of his best qualities.” 

“We also need to remember that he is not getting any younger at the age of 28. We have to learn from him and work with him. Give these ‘youngsters’ an opportunity whilst you still can.”
