Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune signs with Newton Agency

Newton Agency is proud to announce the signing of Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs stalwart Itumeleng Khune. The Agency will exclusively manage his endorsements, sponsorship and marketing opportunities across all business areas.

Having started his career at Chiefs youth academy as a 12 year old, Khune has developed into South Africa’s first choice goalkeeper, with 79 caps and 39 clean sheets for his country so far in his career.“Itumeleng is an incredibly professional football player both on and off the field. The respect he has within South Africa and the international football community is testament to his great work ethic and understanding of what it takes to be the best. The Agency is certainly excited to be looking after a national icon such as himself” said group MD Lee-Roy Newton.

Khune was also happy to become a part of the Agency, knowing he would be able to tap into their creative and innovative approach to managing athletes, saying “I like the way Newton Agency does business and knew they would be a good match for me in the next stage of my career. It is great to know you have the backing of a full team of people all looking out for your best interests as a player and person”.
