The country is still in shock following news of the untimely forced retirement of Brilliant Khuzwayo. The Orlando Pirates shot-stopper was one of the brightest talents in the game and naturally, his counterparts reacted to the devastating news.
There was a lot of confusion surrounding Pirates’ alleged snub of the 29-year-old when the Buccaneers revealed their official squad for the 2019/20 season on Tuesday.
Bucs provided clarity on the matter as they posted a video on all of their official social media platforms where the Umlazi-born keeper shared the heart-breaking news.
Khuzwayo, who featured for the likes of Thanda Royal Zulu, AmaZulu, Kaizer Chiefs and most recently, Orlando Pirates, and while at Chiefs, was strongly tipped to carry on the baton from the ageing Itumeleng Khune.
A loved character in the game, Khuzwayo’s counterparts took to their social media pages to provide him with encouragement as he ventures into the next chapter of his life.
The likes of Siphiwe Tshabalala, Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Itumeleng Khune all shared their shock at Khuzwayo’s misfortune.
