Comparisons between Denis Onyango and Itumeleng Khune continue to dominate football discussions in South Africa, but Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper coach Wendell Robinson believes there is nothing to choose between the two.

The duo have been matched up against each other over the last few seasons, but comparisons have seemingly increased since Onyango's inclusion in CAF's Team of the Year.

Onyango was rewarded for another solid season with the Brazilians while he also kept five clean sheets in six Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers for Uganda.

Khune is largely considered as South Africa's best ever goalkeeper, especially by the Kaizer Chiefs faithful who are quick to jump to Amakhosi shot-stopper's defence.

Robinson, though, feels that it is unfair to compare the two goalkeepers.

"I wouldn't comment about who is better between him and Khune, they're both fantastic goalkeepers,: Robinson told

"The reality is that keepers have different styles and some might not like them, but the most important factor is they're both doing well for their clubs and countries, I can't really say who is better between the two."
