Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs captain Itumeleng Khune has confirmed he will be hosting the 'Khune Legacy Tournament' in his hometown of Ventersdorp from 23 December until New Year's Eve.

The 29-year-old is a big exponent of giving back to his community and will be involved in helping run his self-titled tournament during part of the holiday break for Premiership teams.

The Glamour Boys ended the first-half of the 2016/17 campaign on a high with two victories, which moved the Steve Komphela-coached outfit to within just one point of co-leaders SuperSport United, Bidvest Wits and Cape Town City.

Nonetheless, the goalkeeper will be keeping busy during the break, as he confirmed why he was holding the event on his official Twitter account.

He said: "Real success comes from knowledge, persistence and giving back to the community that helped you.

"We rise by lifting others. All roads lead to Ventersdorp. God is great. Dare yourself each day to be a blessing to someone."
