Johannesburg - There seems to be a war brewing between Kaizer Chiefs boss, Bobby Motaung and star goalie Itumeleng Khune.

Reports in the Sunday Sun and Sunday World, this past weekend both paint a picture of disorder, in the newly crowned PSL champion's camp.

Last Wednesday night was supposed to be one of the greatest nights in the Kaizer Chief's camp - the night they sealed the PSL title.

Instead, it's being reported that the victory was marred by internal politics. It's alleged that the evening turned out to be a nightmare for poor Itu Khune, who was not only given the cold shoulder by his boss in the presidential suite, but was also banned from celebrating with his teammates at the end of the game.

Apparently Bobby believes that Itu does not care about the team anymore and is tired of his arrogance.

According to sources, Bobby told Chiefs personnel to block Khune from entering the Soccer City pitch. "They blocked him before he could come out of the tunnel. They told him Bobby said he must not go anywhere near the pitch," a source told Sunday World.

The source added that Itu was also given a frosty reception by the man in charge during the celebration party. According to a source, Khune greeted Bobby but Bobby "just looked at him coldly."

"Then, Itu left the presidential suite and that's when Bobby started venting about how he's gatvol with Itu's annoying arrogance," the source told Sunday Sun.  

Kaizer Chiefs spokesman denied having any knowledge of the incident or that Itu was stopped from attending the celebrations.

Itu and Bobby were unavailable for comment.
