The talented goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune tells Daily Sun that he took his entire Telkom Knockout Cup prize money and bought his first house after Kaizer Chiefs defeated Mamelodi Sundowns 1-0 in the final on 1 December 2007.

“I bought my first property with my entire prize money that I got from the Telkom Knockout… that’s where my entire money went to. I used the money to pay deposit. Fortunately, it was a brand new house in a development area which didn’t require transfer costs and legal fees.”

The 35-year-old has been investing in property development to prepare for life after football. The soccer star admits that not all soccer players will be coaches or radio or TV analtys in the future.

“When you start early then you develop a habit of continuing to do right things and make wiser decisions. When you leave it up until later, it becomes a problem because you’ve already developed bad habits.”
