Carling Black Label 2019

Khuzwayo Bucs’ Debut To Be Decided By Fans?

With the Carling Black Label making a return this year, after the competition did not take place last year, football fans could be the ones to give goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo his long awaited Orlando Pirates debut with the first team in the coming weeks. 

Khuzwayo spent the entire 2018/19 season without playing any matches for the Pirates first team, owing to injury troubles.

While the former Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper did feature in some matches for Bucs’ MultiChoice Diski Challenge team, he not fully ready for the first team under coach Milutin Sredojevic.

Judging by some of the fans’ reactions to Khuzwayo’s absence from Bucs’ line-ups this past season, it could be expected to see them voting for the shot-stopper to be in goals for their team when the opportunity to do so is presented to them for the match between Chiefs and Pirates.

The Carling Black Label Cup is a unique competition where fans select the starting line-ups of both teams, with two of them even getting to sit on opposite benches with coaches and players during the Soweto Derby.

Depending on his readiness and availability, Khuzwayo will have a chance like any of his teammates, to be selected by fans to play against Chiefs in July. 

As confirmed by the organisers, this year’s Carling Black Label Cup match between the Buccaneers and Amakhosi will be played at FNB Stadium on July 27.
