Things went from bad to worse for Khune and Chiefs who conceded a second goal with just eight minutes to go. Khune attempted to deflect Themba Zwane’s shot, but the rebound landed on Kermit Erasmus’s path, who was right at close range.
As if that weren’t enough, Khune suffered a penalty in the closing minutes of the match when he fouled former Chiefs teammate George Maluleka. Zwane converted the penalty.
After the match, some Chiefs fans took to social media to criticize Khune.
I think we must just accept that Khune akasafani and start investing in Bvuma#Khune #Chiefs

We must admit that Itumeleng #Khune is aging, that was an amateur mistake to just end off the dreadful afternoon he has had. Conceded 3 in the opening game of the season. Akpeyi was great last season, he never got the respect he deserved. #DstvPrem#babizebonke

#Khune must play and enjoy that number 1 jersey while it lasts because as soon as #Akpeyi is fit to play it’s back to the bench for him. Khune is not the same anymore no matter how hard I try to ignore it. Akpeyi fights…also has mistakes but much better. #KaizerChiefs
