Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Brian Baloyi would tell current number one Itumeleng Khune to stay at the club.

According to KickOff, Boloyi admits that Khune is still has much to achieve at the Sowetan club as the 27-year-old ponders on his future.

“I haven’t spoken to him and at the end of the day he is the only one who can decide what he wants to do,” said Baloyi.

“If it is an overseas move, then yes. But if not I would say to him stay where you are.

“Firstly, he’s facing a challenge now with the two boys [Brilliant Khuzwayo and Reyaad Pieterse] pushing him.”

Baloyi believes that Khune never had any competition during his time at Chiefs and sees this as a challenge the goalkeeper should face head on.

Having represented Chiefs on 347 occasions, Baloyi wants to see Khune win as many trophies as he did in his 13-year tenure and wants the shot-stopper alongside, Siphiwe Tshabalala, to break all the records which are still standing at the club.

With Khune’s price tag rumoured to be one of the biggest the PSL has ever seen, Baloyi is confident Chiefs can match any offer.

“There are [local] clubs who can pay his salary, but realistically Chiefs can compete and having been involved with the club in the past, it opens up opportunities commercially.”
