Let's take a closer look at the wholesome moment...

Khune donates boots

Vincent Pitsi, who's facilitated a number of these boot donations in the past, has once again helped make a difference in a young player's life alongside Chiefs legend, Khune.

The popular photographer took to Instagram to share a video that documents him fetching the boots from Khune's place and delivering them to Bongani Xaba during training.

Xaba is nicknamed "Shalulile" for his weekly goal scoring efforts, and will hope to bang in a few more this season wearing his own boots. 

Khune donated a brand new pair of the Nike Phantom GT2 Elite FG boots, valued at around R2 764 on Stock X.

"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 in his goal scoring journey. Thank you very much Itu Khune. The assistance really means a lot to the boy. The gift got the boy crying the TEARS OF JOY," said Pitsi's caption on IG... 

Pitsi went on to thank Khune on IG for continuing to give back to up-and-coming ballers.

Last year, the veteran shot-stopper donated a pair of gloves to Sidingo Nxumalo, a young keeper from NB La Masia Football Club.
