‘Chiefs win will make SA happy’

Itumeleng Khune says Kaizer Chiefs win will make South Africa happy

Posted: 6 December 2012 Time: 09:14 pm

Itumeleng Khune believes the experience he has gained playing in the Soweto Derby will come in handy when he leads Kaizer Chiefs against Orlando Pirates on Saturday in a game he says they must definitely win to make the vast majority of South Africa happy.

Since making his Derby debut on November 24, 2007, Khune has missed just a single official match against Pirates – Saturday will be his 14th Derby.

“I feel I have gained considerable experience in this particular fixture to be able to stand up to all its demands,” he says.

“This is not my first Derby and I don’t doubt that we will do well and make our fans happy. Having played in this fixture before helps because the atmosphere can be very frightening yet also so enjoyable.

“This is a game that we must win because a win for us means the majority of the country is happy. This is a different game where we will have 90 000 Chiefs fans and 7 000 of Pirates in the stadium, so we have to make sure that we put smiles on the people of South Africa because this is the club the majority of the country supports.

“We all know what our responsibility is in this game and we are well focused on it and are going out to deliver on Saturday.”

Khune insists he is not reading much into Pirates’ draw with Chippa United on Wednesday and is just keen to see Chiefs collect all three points on Saturday.

“All we want is three points on Saturday; we don’t want to read much into what happened in their last match,” he says. “We are taking one game at a time, aiming for the next set of three points while keeping our feet firmly on the ground.

“There is three points at stake on Saturday and we are going all out to get all of them,” says the Bafana Bafana number one.

If majority of SA is Chimps, then it also reflects as to lowly we are not only in soccer where we, except other 15 PSL teams, condone mediocrity not only in football, but also on the socia-economic front. No wonder ever this country has an economic growth of less than 2%! Sies!!!!

Well said my Captain. You just need to play a bigger person come Saturday. Your leadership will guide all the guys through the derby. It is in our plans this season that we taking it one game at a time and all the games we'll take them with the idea of 3 points in mind.

You stand corrected Itu 95% wants to be happy come Saturday. Don't mind the Kickoff clowns they don't even attend games.

Captain my captain, You sound like you do not even know the capacity of FNB Stadium any-way thats ok.
This is my humble opion "I see Chiefs going to concede two penulties in the first 45 mins one by its left back another by the central defender but however the referee would only award 1 and wave his hands for the 2'nd one for play on.Chiefs to lose by 3-1 and only be happy to be on 1'st position at least that will be their consolation.
