Khuzwayo excited for new season


"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 preseason preparations," Khuzwayo told his club's website.

"There’s a lot at stake waiting for us in the new season.”

Meanwhile, the 24-year-old expressed delight that he could participate in a coaching clinic in Stanger, KwaZulu-Natal on Sunday.

He said of the experience: “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. I was privileged to be trained by the acclaimed goalkeeper coach, German-born Rainer Dinkelacker and I am playing alongside South Africa’s number goalie Itumeleng Khune and Reyaad Pieterse. I am glad that the guys came in their numbers and appreciated my input.”

Khuzwayo made two appearances for Chiefs last term, with coach Stuart Baxter preferring Reyaad Pieterse to provide cover to first-choice gloveman Itumeleng Khune.
