Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has questioned the methods of a former Amakhosi coach.
According to the Bafana Bafana legend, ex-goalkeeper coach Lee Baxter’s failure to communicate with him regarding his physical condition caused his career serious damage.
Khune made just one appearance last season for the Glamour Boys and he has since opened up on his ‘weight’ issues which hampered him last season.
Khune opens up on last season’s Kaizer Chiefs struggles
“I think most of the time it was just frustration. That’s because I’m one player who never questions the coaches on why I’m not playing or being picked.” the Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper told iDiski Times.
“In every session I knew that I was training well, I was doing well but when I got home I’d relax. I would just eat anything and everything without being aware that I was gaining weight.
“You know that honeymoon phase? My wife would spoil me. I wouldn’t notice because I would judge myself on the field.
“I think the communication between myself, my previous goalkeeper coach and my previous fitness trainer here at Chiefs, wasn’t the way it was supposed to be.”
Former Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper coach Lee Baxter has just landed a new job in Europe.
In other news, Kaizer Chiefs will undoubtedly be looking to beef their squad up in the upcoming January transfer window.
Things however are going to be extremely complicated for the Glamour Boys according to the latest developments.
Just days after SuperSport United tied one of the Amakhosi’s transfer targets down to a long term contract, another team is set to follow suit.
Stellenbosch FC are rushing to get Kaizer Chiefs target Sibongiseni Mthethwa to sign a contract extension at the club according to reports.
Stellies to fend off interest in star man?
“Mthethwa is a very honest guy, and has been a good professional at Stellenbosch since he set foot at the club.” an insider told Citizen regarding the Kaizer Chiefs target.
“He is well aware of all these teams that want him, but he also knows that the club can’t afford to lose him.
“The Stellenbosch management are already working on a new contract for him because they want to put a stop to all these links,”
