- Khune shared the video on his Instagram account, harking back to a sensational goalkeeping effort against Amazulu four years ago
- Some supporters said that he needed to only focus to get back to his best, while critics were not convinced, believing the time had come for him to retire
Sports Brief readers had a wildly different set opinion on a video of Itumeleng Khune reliving some of the best moments of his career.
The clip, accompanied by music, was of him pulling off three sensational saves against Amazulu in a match from the 2017/18 ABSA Premiership season. Khune's continued exclusion from the starting XI at Naturena has been the subject of continued debate in recent times.
The video had a mixed reaction, to put it mildly, on social media.
Mike Choshi said:
"Itumeleng Khune is an excellent goal keeper. The problem is with the defenders... no good goalkeeper without better defenders. Never!"
Mjoli Gema said:
"Kaizer is not ANC where you work until you reach 78 years."
Bongani Dasheka said:
"Khune is still good at goalkeeping, mainly because of his experience and what we all know what he is capable of. All he just needs to do is to work on his body and try to at least lose some weight."
Bheki Ngcobo said:
"I remember this game... Itu was given a standing ovation by the supporters. I could see it really meant a lot to him."
Kalushy HS said:
"He must just retire. He is 45 years."
