Kaizer Chiefs skipper Itumeleng Khune will tonight reach a personal milestone of 200 games when he leads Amakhosi against Mpumalanga Black Aces at FNB Stadium.

The 26-year-old made his PSL debut on 25 August, 2007 against Jomo Cosmos in the second league match of the 2007-08 season, and has since been an everpresent for Chiefs when available.

He has kept 91 clean sheets in the 199 games he has played in all competitions, while also earning 64 caps and taking over the Bafana Bafana captaincy.

Besides his recent ankle injury that forced him to miss a month of action, Khune also sat out a sizeable chunk of the 2009-10 campaign through injury.

Since making his debut seven years ago, Khune has also won every piece of silverware on the domestic scene in the shape of the Telkom Knockout (twice), MTN8, Nedbank Cup and the ABSA Premiership, while he has twice been named the KICK OFF Footballer of the Season.

Khune started this season on 172 appearances.
