Itumeleng Khune Facing Kaizer Chiefs Exit After Reportedly Arriving for Training Under the Influence
- Itumeleng Khune has been a popular Kaizer Chiefs figure for almost 15 years
- The celebrity goalkeeper is now approaching the end of his glittering career
- Dressing room issues are being cited for Chiefs' poor overall season so far
A Kaizer Chiefs legend is teetering on an ignominious exit.
Itumeleng Khune is at the mercy of the club's hierarchy after a terrible start to the 2023/24 which has been punctuated by ill-discipline.
The goalkeeper had his contract extended by one year and this season is meant to be the farewell tour for the most glamorous of all Glamour Boys.
Khune is believed to have recently arrived for training 'slightly tipsy' and the club has been forced to take action, as reported by FARPost.
He has a history of enjoying the nightlife. News24 reported on an incident back in 2019 where he was recorded making outlandish claims in a tavern while intoxicated.
Mental health has come into sharp focus in recent weeks and Khune also came under fire for publicly revealing rival goalkeeper, Brandon Petersen's mental health struggles.
As reported by Goal, Khune said:
"The club has provided resources for him by bringing in a psychologist, just to discover what he is going through on and off the field. You could see that Brandon has changed his way of doing things, he is not himself."
Khune has had a charmed career, etching himself into the consciousness of the South African public well beyond the borders of football. As a result, fans have flocked to defend the player.
The incident has ripped the cover off a few other issues which could be at the root of Chiefs' disharmony.
Claims that players of a certain ethnicity have been receiving preferential treatment were published by Sunday World in print.
