How Khune shocked VV at Chiefs


Itumeleng Khune once shocked Vladimir Vermezovic at training after revealing a fact that stunned the former Kaizer Chiefs coach.

Khune was known by 'VV' when he was appointed Amakhosi coach in 2009 as the goalkeeper was already the national team's number one in the early years of his PSL career.

However, it was Khune's younger brother Lucky who caused a funny moment at training after he was promoted to the senior team from the club's development.

The striker was promoted when Vermezovic took charge in 2009/10 and was tipped to follow in his older brother's footsteps.

Khune says he didn't know 'VV' was about to become Chiefs coach when he was watching their development games.

"When I was still in development I used to be a top goalscorer each and every season, which I believe is why they promoted me," 32-year-old Lucky tells

"They couldn't believe I can score goals until our last game against Silver Stars, and it happens that coach VV was watching us and we didn't know that he was the new Chiefs coach, we were just playing our normal football."

Khune says the day he signed a professional contract, Vermezovic didn't know that Itu was his older sibling and only found out at training after a week.

"He didn't know that I'm Itu's brother, he only found out a week later, after their conversation about me at training," Lucky says.

"My brother said, 'Oh, that's my younger brother.' And he was shocked."
