The Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper and captain trended on Twitter after the TV presenter announced that she was splitting from husband Quinton Jones.
Minnie and Itu split in 2014 by calling off their engagement after years together. At the time of their break-up, Khune was rumoured to have paid a hefty sum in lobola for Minnie.
Now tweeps are suggesting that Minnie and Khune rekindle their romance, despite the fact that the latter is married and a father of two.
Itumeleng Khune never recovered after breaking up with Minnie Dlamini and as a result he lost his position as the first choice goalkeeper for both Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana 💔

On Twitter, he replied to a tweet posted by his wife Siphelele, whom he shares two daughters with.
The tweet was about Siphelele being spoiled on Valentine’s Day by her soccer player husband. “How was your Valentine’s Day? Mine was beautiful as you can see”, she posted alongside a picture of the couple kissing.
Itu responded to the tweet with four emojis; a heart, a rose, a champagne bottle and a set of champagne glasses to toast with.

But despite his best efforts, many tweeps thought Khune’s timing was a bit sus.
“Now you’re posting about Valentine’s day, because the poor lady just released her statement”
“O braggela Minnie jaanong, just because she released a statement, have a heart man”
“Why do you express your Valentine’s experience now? Did you perhaps receive some good news on this app this afternoon?”
