Latest update: Kaizer Chiefs give Itumeleng Khune TWO options!

Itumeleng Khune may still have a future at Kaizer Chiefs, beyond the end of the current season.

Khune had has been vocal about prolonging his playing career, which is unlikely to be at Chiefs.

Over the years, Khune has been a stalwart for Chiefs, being their number-one goalkeeper for well over a decade. In recent years, however, the 36-year-old has been plagued by injuries and lack of form, which have seen him dropped. With the club failing to find a regular goalkeeper to take over, they have often called on him repeatedly. 

Rough season for Khune

He rreturned with a man of the match performance for the Carling All Stars XI. The country got to see yet another glimpse of what he is still capable of in front of the sticks. With Chiefs making a statement that Khune will retire, he came out to say he isn’t ready to do so. Therefore, he might have to find another club next season.

In recent times, he has even been linked with a move to Sekhukhune United, as a renewal of his contract looks unlikely. But now according to Soccer-Laduma, Chiefs have given him an ultimatum.

Chiefs give him two options?

“For now Khune still has a future at the club (Chiefs). It could not be in the playing capacity but the club still wants to keep him. He has a legacy at the club and the club are proud to use him where he could fit in well. You remember at Erst it was proposed that he could be working in the marketing department with Jessica (Motaung) or also in the goalkeeping department but (that choice) now lies in his own hands because he has indicated that he would like to play for at least one or t two more United seasons before retiring. So, now it’s all up to Khune to decide whether he joins the backroom staff or he moves on to another club where he can play further,” said the source to the same publication.

What should Khune do? Take the non-playing role at Chiefs or push for a few more years elsewhere?
