He may be one of the finest players in the country but Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune has endured his fair share of criticism, particularly when it comes to his age. The 31-year-old has hit back at his critics. Check it out.

June 20 1987, that is the official date on which Itumeleng Isaac Khune was born. However, some people are questioning the validity of this, with many suggesting that he may not be the age that he claims to be.

Khune was introduced to football lovers as a fresh-faced teenager in 2004. Since then he went on to represent South Africa and Kaizer Chiefs with aplomb.

The shot-stopper has had enough and has taken to social media to retaliate against those who question his age.

“Next person to ask me about my age will get this, serious,” Khune tweeted with a meme depicting a few soldiers ready to fire a catapult.

A Twitter user then took it a step further.

“If Itu is 31 years, Mina am 21 years Football Age”

To which Khune replied, “Don’t compare (yourself) to me, Sir. Don’t.”

Do you think that South African fans are ageist?

But seriously Khune I don't think he is 31yrs I can tell you now...he is 36yrs same age as Tiko Modise I know lot of players in the PSL are over age but choose to lower their age...just to secure the PSL contracts.. Khune is one of could see by his appearance he is older than he claims...
