Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs' legendary goalkeeper, Banks Setlhodi, has confessed that Itumeleng Khune is in his own league when it comes to talent and ability.

In the past two seasons, Khune has been plagued by niggling injuries that have seen Chiefs rotate the goalkeeping duties between Brilliant Khuzwayo and Reyaad Pieterse.

Although Khuzwayo has produced several eye-catching performances in Khune's absence, Setlhodi has no doubt that the 28-year-old remains Amakhosi's first-choice shot-stopper.

"You know this boy (Khuzwayo) has done really well. I can't really put him far behind Khune, although his presence and experience doesn't even come close to that of Khune," Setlhodi told Soccer Laduma.

"Having said that, whenever he has been called upon he's delivered exactly the same performance expected from Khune. He's a quality goalkeeper.

"Who can forget his last two Soweto Derby performances, where he was thrown into the deep end after having not played for a while before those games?

"He went out there and came back with two Man of the Match performances!"
