Zitha Kwinika praises Khune back in goal and on a song for Kaizer Chiefs is a big boost for the club, as they look to make ground on Mamelodi Sundowns in the DStv Premiership title race.
“Itu is one of the greatest players in the country,” said Chiefs defender Kwinika this week at the Chiefs Village.
“It is not only about Itu, everyone has a role to play. Itu’s role is to make saves, it is part of his job like tackling is part of my job. But having him behind you is important, not only for me but also for opponents. When they play, they know about Khune, he is our leader and he is leading by example.”
On Saturday, Amakhosi will celebrate their 53rd birthday as they face off against Sekhukhune United at FNB Stadium. Kwinika understands the significance of this occasion and hopes to pick up another win for the team. Last Saturday, Chiefs began their return to the league with a 2-0 victory against Golden Arrows.
Kwinika emphasized the importance of maintaining this momentum and starting the second half of the season with a clean slate. He also acknowledged the privilege of being a part of such a historic team and the responsibility that comes with representing the brand. Kwinika hopes for a successful game against Sekhukhune United.
