South African soccer fans have voted Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune as the Jet Club PSL Rookie of the Year for the 2007-2008 season.

It was just one year ago when Kaizer Chiefs head coach Muhsin Ertugral decided to give the goalkeeper, who celebrated his 21st birthday on June 20, a chance to prove himself in the first team.

This was what the youngster from Ventersdorp in the North West was waiting for, and he went on to make his professional debut for Chiefs on August 25 against Jomo Cosmos, with the game ending in a 1-1 draw.

This was the start of an impressive season which saw the young player win a number of accolades. - PSL website
