Kaizer Chiefs captain Itumeleng Khune has signed for Orlando Pirates – Here is the truth

Reports trended overnight that Kaizer Chiefs captain Itumeleng Khune has signed for Orlando Pirates, and here is the truth behind the noise.

Khune, 33, has spent his entire professional career at Chiefs since graduating from the club’s academy back in 2004 as a fresh-faced teenager.

Widely regarded as one of the club’s greatest ever players, the 91-time capped South Africa international looks poised to become one of the rare one-club men in PSL football and could potentially be provided a role at the club upon his retirement.

And with Pirates being their fierce cross-town rivals, the rumors that he’s poised to dump Amakhosi for The Buccaneers spread like wildfire on social media.

Chiefs and Khune’s loyal fans were left bewildered but upon taking a closer look, the #KhuneSignsForPirates originated from an altered screenshot of an article back in 2015 during a period when Khune hand a standoff over a new contract.

In the same period, his younger brother Jacob signed his first professional contract with Pirates, which was taken out of context and made to look like the Bafana goalkeeper has joined the Soweto giants.

Despite Khune losing his first-team spot to Daniel Akpeyi over the course of the 2019/20 season, it’s likely that he will remain in Chiefs colors for the foreseeable future.
