Kaizer Chiefs captain to beat Doctor Khumalo’s record

Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune registered his 300th appearance for the Glamour Boys on the weekend.

The 30-year-old, who made his Chiefs debut in August 2007 against Jomo Cosmos, achieved the milestone in a 2-1 win over Stellenbosch FC in the last-16 of the Nedbank Cup at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.

He follows in the footsteps of teammate Siphiwe Tshablalala, who reached his triple century last term.

“With age, my body strength is slowly regressing, but I am able to read situations much faster and, as a result, close down situations before they become dangerous,” Khune is quoted as saying on his club’s website.

“Goalkeeping is like good wine, the older the better.

“I am still hungry for more success and want to win more trophies.”

Baroka technical director Doctor Khumalo hold’s Amakhosi’s appearance record with 397 outings for the Soweto giants.
