Shongwe: Khune should seek loan move

Premiership

Kaizer Chiefs legend William Shongwe has advised out-of-favour goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune to seek a loan move away from the club.

The Bafana Bafana international has fallen down the pecking order at Chiefs which has seen him receive limited game-time last season.

"For me, he should seek a loan as you don't want to drop Bruce Bvuma right now," Shongwe tells KickOff.

"Bvuma has been outstanding, he's the future, and he will be there for the next ten years or so.

"He's proven under very testing times that he's definitely a goalkeeper to be reckoned with.

"He made Chiefs bounce back and make it into the Top Eight.

"So you can't drop Bvuma again and make him restart the clock.

"The only challenge is that having been born at Kaizer Chiefs, it becomes harder for Khune sometimes to imagine himself anywhere else other than his home.

"Otherwise the alternative would have been to go and try other avenues maybe, to go on loan.

"I'm sure there are a lot of other teams that could use his ability and experience compared to him just sitting on the bench and just training and training week in and week out."

Shongwe admits Khune could also pursue a coaching role as he reaches the twilight of his career.

"According to some people I spoke to, it will depend on how Khune responds to the coaching course he attended.

"If he loves it, then management might look at it as an option because it's been hard for him to come back into the position where he could claim the number one spot.

"I don't believe at all that Khune is finished, I still feel he has what it takes.

"I mean in the recent DStv Compact Cup he gave us a glimpse of who Khune is.

"He bounced back so powerfully, he is nowhere near his end.

"For me, he still has three good seasons left."
