Khune: Chiefs plan to end Downs dominance

accreditation

Amakhosi have failed to lift silverware going onto seven consecutive seasons while being forced to watch Sundowns lifting five consecutive league titles.

"Like I said we have not been winning trophies for the past seven years and that's not what Kaizer Chiefs is about.

"We are known for winning trophies every season and I have tasted that glory and it's easy for me to encourage the other guys.

"Even last season when the new guys came, we won the Carling Black Label against our rivals, Orlando Pirates and I told them you can feel it's different to win a trophy but again it was just a friendly.

"So we had to start with the MTN 8 and win it but unfortunately we had a tough opponent in Mamelodi Sundowns, but still managed to take them to extra-time and penalties.

"We know Sundowns have been dominating for five if not six seasons now and this season we roped in great players and hopefully they will help the club reclaim the glory," said Khune.

Kaizer Chiefs are set to travel to Kwazulu Natal to face Royal AM in their first league match at the Chatsworth Stadium in Durban on Saturday.
