Newly signed Orlando Pirates goalkeeper, Brilliant Khuzwayo has explained how joining his new club has reminded of the late star, Senzo Meyiwa.
Khuzwayo, who joined Pirates after parting ways with Kaizer Chiefs, was welcomed at his new club this week, alongside a host of other new signings for coach Milutin Sredojevic’s team.
“It’s very emotional for me [standing in these goalposts], knowing that this was the last place Senzo stood before he passed away. We come from the same place and we were close, so standing here brings back those memories and thoughts of him,” the Umlazi-born player told Bucs’ official website.
The 28-year-old will be hoping to win the team’s number one jersey while competing with the likes of Siyabonga Mpontshane, Jackson Mabokgwane and Wayne Sandilands – if all of the goalkeepers will still be at the club for the new season.
“I’m also looking out over the field and trying to visualise where I’d be distributing the ball, who will be running into space and also imagining what it will be like playing in front of the fans in an official game. 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,” said the goalkeeper.
