Up-and-coming Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeping prospect, Nhlanhla Brilliant Khuzwayo, was recently involved in a clinic to help develop aspiring young keepers.
The 24-year-old took part in the initiative in his home city of Durban, and young hopefuls from townships such as Maphumulo, Ndwedwe, and Mandeni all took part.
Khuzwayo explained why he had such a passion to give back to the game that has provided him with so many opportunities.
He told the club's official website, "I did this because of a dream to plough back. I have been in this stage before, where I wished to be a professional goalkeeper. Learning the basics at an early age is key to success for a goalkeeper. I have been trained by the best and played alongside the best at Chiefs, and I want to share my knowledge with the youngsters."
Khuzwayo added, "I was privileged to be trained by the acclaimed goalkeeper coach, German-born Rainer Dinkelacker and I am playing alongside South Africa’s number one goalie Itumeleng Khune and Reyaad Pieterse. I am glad that the guys came in their numbers and appreciated my input."
In addition, the talented shot-stopper added that he was looking forward to the 2014/15 season with Chiefs, saying, “I can’t wait to get back into action, I will be back to work soon to prepare myself before the team starts with the pre-season preparations. There’s a lot at stake waiting for us in the new season.”
The Glamour Boys' season gets underway on the weekend of 8-10 August with a clash against Free State Stars.
