Kaizer Chiefs star Itumeleng Khune has once again shown himself to be a leading figure in the local game after offering a lending hand to an aspiring footballer in need. Check it out!

What Happened?

The club captain has earned a reputation for being one of the best to ever grace the local game. However, off the field, Khune has also been somewhat of a charitable figure as he is often asked by aspiring footballers in need if he has any boots or gloves to donate. 

On Many occasions, the 35-year-old has been one to offer a hand of help. 

It appears that Khune has done this again. 

Photographer Vino Snap has shared a story of Khune's latest philanthropy.

"Bongane Xaba is a young striker from Boipatong who’s been scoring goals week in, week out,"

"After hearing that, such a sharp shooter is struggling with soccer boots and only play through borrowing. Itumeleng Khune reached out with a pair of boots to assist Shasha."

With inspiring people like Khune around, it is refreshing as the young stars have someone they can look up to and aspire to be like. 

If most footballers did this, the world would be a better place. 

Did you know?

George Maluleka named Khune among his best dressed players in the local game. 

Your thoughts, please?

Should more footballers offer a helping hand?
