Hunt raises 'big concern' over Khune

Premiership

Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt has conceded that the state of the club's current longest serving player Itumeleng Khune is of major concern.

Khune returned to Chiefs starting line-up following a two-month absence since being dropped back in December following costly blunders in successive games.

The 33-year-old, however, failed to make good of the opportunity afforded to him as he once again slipped up to allow AmaZulu to walk away 2-1 victors from FNB Stadium on Wednesday evening.

The former Bafana Bafana number-one has conceded 12 of Amakhosi's 19 goals in the DStv Premiership this season as they slumped to their sixth defeat in 16 games.

Asked to reflect on the shortcomings of the goalkeeping department, particularly that of Khune, Hunt conceded that there are huge concerns while also suggesting that the issue goes beyond the glaring goalkeeping mistakes witnessed on the pitch.

"Ja, it's not the place nor the forum to talk, sorry to talk like that, but it's a big concern – yes – since I've been here," said the four-time league-winning coach.

"So ja, it's something we just have to keep working on and hopefully we can improve there but it's certainly... I think it's a bit more than that, that you've mentioned, but it's something that's a concern – a big concern."
