Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo has admitted that he has an emotional tie to Bucs having played for their development side and returning as a first team player.
“It’s very emotional for me [standing in these goalposts], knowing that this was the last place Senzo stood before he passed away,” he told Pirates’ official.
“We come from the same place and we were close, so standing here brings back those memories and thoughts of him.”
“I’m also looking out over the field and trying to visualise where I’d be distributing the ball, who will be running into the space and also imagining what it will be like playing in front of the fans in an official game,” he continued.
“I’m really excited at being an Orlando Pirates goalkeeper and looking forward to making the supporters happy. We are, after all, the Happy People.”
