Black Label Cup hero Itumeleng Khune was full of praise for selected head coach
Jose Riveiro, who guided the Carling All-Star team to victory over Stellenbosch
on Saturday.

Kasi Football Is Where Sundowns Saw Me

on the day Khune rolled back the years as he pulled off one save after the
other at the New Peter Mokaba Stadium to keep the Cape Winelands outfit at bay, which rightfully saw him walk
away with the Man of the Match award.

Vilakazi and Ashley Du Preez’s goals secured victory for the All Stars, while
Mervin Boji scored late on for coach Steve Barker’s side.

to the media after the match, Khune provided insight into working with the Spanish
coach, who under normal circumstances, would be on the bench of archrivals
Orlando Pirates.

think the results and the performance today gives you answers of how he is as a
coach. Since he’s been in the country and he has won two [correction: three]
cups already for his club.

gives you the sense that he is a great coach and the fact that his club went
all the way to Spain to get him and they believe in him. Same as the fans here

quality as a coach, it shows how dedicated he is to the game and his winning

“In two
days he managed to prepare us and people wrote us off. You would have given Stellenbosch
a win just before the game started. But the fact that we got two early goals
shows that we responded well as players and the coach and the rest of the coaching
staff deserve the credit,” he continued.
