Opposing coach praises Khune’s keeping



Black Leopards coach Joel Masutha praised the goalkeeping of Itumeleng Khune and said the Bafana Bafana custodian had stood between his side and points at FNB on Wednesday.

The Kaizer Chiefs captain made three key saves in the game to keep Leopards at bay as Chiefs won 1-0 to move into the top four of the Absa Premiership.

“It was always a game that was going to be determined by small margins and it was very right. We always knew that we would create chances. The only question was when where we going to score.

“Credit to Khune because he made three saves in quick succession.”

Masutha looked frustrated as Leopards stayed on nine points, just two above the relegation zone.

“We’ve been doing this all season long, creating chances but our undoing is the low rate of conversion of those chances.

“But some times it is also about good goalkeeping.”

Masutha said he did not want to moan about bad luck.

“Everyone needs to create their own luck but we really need to convert our chances.”

Leopards next travel away to Cape Town City. “I always preach to my players that we must never stop believing,” he added.
