Kaizer Chiefs: Khune ranked as third best goalkeeper on FIFA21


While things may not be going according to plan on the field of play for Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune, the former Bafana Bafana star achieved a massive accolade in the virtual football world.

Kaizer Chiefs veteran Itumeleng Khune has been subjected to much abuse over the past few months due to some shocking performances in Amakhosi colours however his FIFA21 ranking will give him something to smile about.

Khune has been ranked as the third best goalkeeper on FIFA21 in terms of ‘distribution’. Manchester City’s Brazilian international Ederson comes in at first place while World Cup Winning German Goalkeeper was rated in second place.

Itumeleng Khune’s distribution has earned him massive praise throughout his career but being selected as the third best goalkeeper in the world in this category will undoubtedly be the icing on the cake for the 33-year-old Kaizer Chiefs star.

Khune form a cause for concern

“I don’t know, I think I’m trying to do too much,” Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Khune told SuperSport TV after committing a second grave error in two weeks in December 2020.

“I’m trying to be a ballplayer, I’m trying to be a goalkeeper at the same time. I think that I should just go back to sticking to be a goalkeeper because I want the team to play more. I mean I don’t want Kaizer Chiefs to keep playing the ball in the air.

“I want us to play more out from the back and I want to look for those pockets [of space] unfortunately tonight the guys read the ball that I wanted to play in the pocket to Mshini [Nkosingiphile Ngcobo].

“They converted the chance and it’s sad that I just gave away two goals in two weeks, it’s very bad and we have to go back and work on it. Because I’ve been playing for many seasons and I’ve never made such mistakes for Kaizer Chiefs before.”

Itumeleng Khune has been dropped from the Kaizer Chiefs squad over the last four games. It remains to be seen whether he has suffered an injury or has fallen out of favour at the Amakhosi.
