Orlando Pirates’ Khuzwayo to play in the MDC on Sunday

The wait is over for Brilliant Khuzwayo…well, sort of.

Following his move from Kaizer Chiefs to rivals Orlando Pirates as a free agent at the start of the 2018/19 season, the goalkeeper has been struggling with an ankle injury that’s denied him an official debut for his new club.

But he now looks set for a comeback – with the reserve team on Sunday afternoon when Pirates’ Multichoice Diski Challenge side takes on Chippa United at the Sisa Dukashe Stadium in East London.

Khuzwayo took to his Twitter and Instagram account to reveal that he was finally fit to play competitive football and that he was hungry for action.

There has been an outcry from Pirates fans to see the former SA junior international back between the sticks to try and displace Siyabonga Mpontshane and Jackson Mabokgwane as first and second choice respectively.

Last month Khuzwayo pleaded with the Buccaneers faithful to be patient, arguing that he needed to be cautious with his recovery.

“Bayern Munich rushed Manuel Neuer back on the field after a foot injury and he almost didn’t make it to the World Cup, please be careful Brilliant. Don’t rush it, go back to the field when you are 100 %,” Khuzwayo shared this message from his former goalkeeper coach at Chiefs, Rainer Dinkelacker.


  1. Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Cheers

  2. Throughout the great scheme of things you actually secure an A+ just for effort and hard work. Exactly where you confused everybody ended up being in your details. You know, people say, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be more correct at this point. Having said that, let me say to you what exactly did deliver the results. Your article (parts of it) can be incredibly engaging and that is most likely the reason why I am taking an effort in order to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, whilst I can certainly notice a leaps in reasoning you make, I am not really sure of just how you appear to connect the points which inturn help to make the final result. For right now I shall yield to your position but trust in the near future you connect your dots much better.
