In a statement released on Thursday, Amakhosi said they intend to honour Khune for his 25 years of service in their final home match of the season against Polokwane City on Saturday. Khune arrived at Chiefs in 1999 as a young boy, and he played for the club’s development for five years prior to his promotion. The now 36-year-old was first promoted to the Chiefs senior team in 2004 but he had to wait until 2007 to make his debut. 
 
Khune, a stalwart of South African football, has been a pillar of strength for Kaizer Chiefs for over two decades, having arrived as a youngster from Ventersdorp, in the North West, back in 1999. Known for his exceptional goalkeeping skills and leadership on and off the field, Khune started in the Kaizer Chiefs Youth Development Academy before being promoted to the senior team at the start of the 2004/05 season. 
 
Khune spent five years in the youth structures, and is currently in his record-setting 20th season with the senior team. 
 
Supporters in Gauteng, and those from further afield who are able to travel, are encouraged to come in large numbers to show appreciation for Khune’s contributions to the Amakhosi cause. The game against Polokwane City will not only be a crucial match for Kaizer Chiefs, with three vital points at stake, but also a poignant moment for fans to celebrate the career of a true legend of the game in South Africa. 
 
Saturday’s match will be the penultimate outing for the Glamour Boys, who wrap up the season in Cape Town against Cape Town Spurs on 25 May. 
 
Kaizer Chiefs supporters and football fans are invited to join us at FNB Stadium on Saturday to witness the team’s final home game of 2023/24 and to honour Khune’s remarkable legacy with the Club.
