Pirates confirm Khuzwayo retirement

Orlando Pirates have confirmed that goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo has been forced into early retirement.


The Pirates and former Bafana shotstopper has been struggling with a recurring ankle injury which has forced him to hang up his boots at the age of 29-years-old.

He returned to Pirates in 2018 following a six year stint at Kaizer Chiefs.

Speaking to the Orlando Pirates website, Khuzwayo was sad to have to call time on his career early then he had hoped. Due to his injury, Khuzwayo did not feature during the 2018/2019 season.

“It was a great feeling to come back to the club, unfortunately due to my ankle, I was unable to fulfil my dream. I am a person who always wants to perform knowing I can give my all in everything I do however due to my ankle and after consultation with the specialists it was said that I wouldn’t be able to play at an elite level. For this reason I can no longer continue the way I wanted to.”
