Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune on Thursday released statistics to prove that he has been the undisputed best between the sticks in the Absa Premiership over the last decade.

Khune, who is side-lined for the remainder of the 2018/2019 campaign - after undergoing shoulder surgery - had come in for scrutiny after Mamelodi Sundowns' Denis Onyango was named in the CAF Africa's Best Eleven at the CAF Awards.

The gloating by some fans seemed to strike a nerve with the Bafana Bafana international who hit back by posting a picture on Twitter showing off his many man-of-the-match awards for this season.

The 31-year-old has now taken it a step further by posting unofficial statistics showing that he has been the best goalkeeper in South Africa over the last 10 years.

Khune was named as the Goalkeeper of the Season for the 2017/2018 campaign after tallying a total of 16 clean sheets.
