This comes after Khune came under heavy criticism from the likes of Benni McCarthy, Moeneeb Josephs, Fabian McCarthy and Matthew Booth for his selection as one of the overage players in Owen da Gama’s squad for the Rio Olympics.
February says he does not want anyone to fight unnecessary battles on his behalf, as he intends to challenge Khune for the No 1 jersey at the Olympics.
“We do not have to be upset that Khune has come in,” February told TimesLive.
“The way we look at it, Nkosingiphile Gumede and I will learn from him. I will take as much advice as I can from him (Khune) because I am young and upcoming, I have a future ahead of me and where he can help I will always take that advice.
“He has played in the World Cup, the Confederations Cup and he has been in the national team for the last 10 years. I am just looking to grow and hopefully I can emulate if not better that. I have goals in life and I want to play for Bafana Bafana, push myself to new heights.
“I think he is an amazing guy, humble, always helping us in training. He trained with us (on Monday) for the first time and he was actually pushing us and helping us a lot, giving us small advice on how to help our game, and vice versa.”
