Orlando Pirates’ new goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo is set to miss the start of the season, with the club confirming that the former Kaizer Chiefs shot-stopper is set to receive treatment.
With the Buccaneers preparing to take on Highlands Park in their first Absa Premiership match of the 2018/19 season, it has been confirmed that Khuzwayo has been scheduled to undergo surgery.
The goalkeeper is expected to be out for between three to four weeks while recovering from the injury, as confirmed by the Soweto giants.
“Goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo will miss the start of the league as he is set to be out of action for between 3-4 weeks,” confirmed Bucs on the club’s official website.
“Khuzwayo will see an orthopaedic surgeon this week to remove screws in his ankle and to have a scope performed. Although not serious, this treatment is more of a corrective measure to allow the player to endure a pain-free season with the Buccaneers,” confirmed the club.
