The Carling Knockout match between Stellenbosch FC and Carling Knockout All-Star XI took place at Peter Mokaba Stadium on January 6, 2024, in Polokwane, South Africa. Itumeleng Khune of the Carling All-Star XI celebrated the team goal during the game. Khune, an iconic figure in South African football, has been in talks with Amakhosi for a new contract as his current deal is set to expire at the end of the season.

While Sekhukhune United has been linked to Khune, there has been no confirmation about his potential move to the club to further his playing career. There are strong indications that Khune may stay at Chiefs, with sources suggesting that the discussions have been positive. The club is reportedly keen to retain him, and talks have been ongoing, even during a period when Khune was serving a suspension.

It is suggested that if Khune remains at Chiefs, he may transition into a coaching position at Naturena. A source mentioned that the decision appears to be almost finalized, and as it stands, Khune is not expected to move to another club. Despite not currently playing, Khune is still regarded as the club captain by Chiefs.

His value to the team is acknowledged, and the club is said to respect his role as the club captain, even if he is not the matchday in-game captain. The possibility remains for Khune to continue at the club, and the decision will depend on the agreement between the two parties, whether it involves him staying on as a player, coach, or potentially in a different role within the club, such as the marketing department. Soccer Laduma reached out to Chiefs for a comment but had not received a response by the time of publishing.
