Khune: I'm a champion again

Nedbank Cup

Amakhosi earned a point against SuperSport United yesterday to take the 2012/13 Premiership title, and are up against University of Pretoria in their last League match before facing Matsatsantsa again on May 25 in the Cup Final.

“We have a very important game against Tuks in Mbombela on Saturday 18 May. The supporters will see a different Chiefs. It is important to end the season on a high note,” Khune tells Chiefs’ official website.

“We came here to win today but a point was enough for us to win the title. The point is not good enough and we have to fight for three points on Saturday before we can start thinking about Nedbank Cup Final.”

The Chiefs goalkeeper won the League with Chiefs in 2005, after being promoted to the first team in 2004, but he has come a long way since then, and this season took over the captain’s armband, both for club and country.

“I won the League as a youngster back in 2004/05 and now I am a champion again,” Khune says.

“I want to take this opportunity and thank everyone at the [Chiefs] Village, all the departments, the ladies who make tea, cleaners, staff, groundsmen, the technical team and the supporters who stood by us throughout the season – this is for you.

“We also worked hard as players and credit to each and everyone in the team.”
