Khuzwayo Ready If Called Upon

With Itumeleng Khune out injured for at least another few weeks, Brilliant Khuzwayo may be the man called upon to play in the Soweto Derby for Kaizer Chiefs.

Reyaad Pieterse played recently in the club's 2-0 defeat to Platinum Stars, yet some questions were raised about his performance. Generally speaking, Chiefs' defence looked a little bit disorganised, and the 22-year-old perhaps should have done better with Stars' second goal.

With close to 80 000 expected to pour into the FNB Stadium, and millions watching on TV sets across taverns, bars and homes across the country – we asked Khuzwayo how terrified he might be to make a mistake in possibly the African continent’s biggest game. Does he have what it takes to replace the great Khune if Stuart Baxter decides to rest Pieterse?

Khuzwayo told the Siya crew, “I don't want to dwell much on the derby and who is going to play or not, because no matter who plays or who doesn't play – we win games as a team. It is the team work which makes things happen for us. It would seriously be a great honour to play in a derby as that is one of the biggest games. I have played already for the team not in a derby. All games have the same importance and we play to win. I would love to keep a clean sheet in such a game and help my team win. Whether you start because Itumeleng Khune is out with injury or not, you are always motivated to do well. Not just for yourself but the team as well. Any mistake in any game is not good for any player, and not just the goalkeeper. So, as I have said we will play as a team and win as a team on the day no matter who plays or not.”
