Khune shows off latest Nike offering

The Locker Room

Kaizer Chiefs captain Itumeleng Khune was amongst a host of PSL stars to show off the latest Nike offering that's made waves since its historic release.

Khune, 33, might be out of favour at Chiefs after injury issues during the 2019/20 campaign that's seen Daniel Akpeyi stake his claim for a place in the starting XI - but remains one of the most marketable figures in South Africa football.

And with Nike recently launching their 'Flight' ball that took eight years of production before it's official release last month, the Mr. 'Distribution 101' was among the first stars to receive and promote their latest offering.

The 'revolutionary' ball that has promised to change the landscape of the modern game by the American sportswear manufacturer was also showcased by the likes of Andile Jali and several other Nike sponsored PSL stars.

"The whole purpose of this [ball] is to offer consistent flight and it's to give the players more confidence of putting the ball where they really want it," Kieran Ronan, GM of Global Football Equipment at Nike told us at the official launch.

With the ball set to make it's debut in the Premier League and Bundesliga next season, the Mzansi stars were able to get an exclusive glance at what makes the R2000 ball so special.

It took 1700 hours of testing to perfect the vision of the Flight ball?
