The South African Football Association (SAFA) has once again left football fans scratching their heads with their selection of the Rio 2016 Olympics squad.
Ajax Cape Town striker, Nathan Paulse, also defiantly came out in support of his club team-mate while questioning the actual value that Khune would add to the squad.
“I don’t see why he has been picked. People throw the ‘experienced’ tag around, but I think experience only counts when you’ve achieved on that (highest) stage, which then allows you to pass on that experience.
“Khune hasn’t done anything great for South African football as yet. I mean, South Africa hasn’t won a cup at senior level.
“So for me if you’re selecting a senior player, you should either take someone with experience who has achieved at the highest level.
“The number of caps can be thrown into the argument, but caps in my opinion have been won by just about any Tom, Dick and Harry, so to say he’s the most capped player, to be quite frank, it means half-and-half because we fail to hand out caps to players who’ve earned it.”
