JOHANNESBURG - Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper, Brilliant Khuzwayo, has fractured a bone in his ankle and will undergo surgery on Friday, missing Amakhosi’s next fixture, if not several in the foreseeable future.
Chiefs’ medical team reported that the keeper picked up the injury in Amakhosi’s victory in the Nedbank Cup Last 32 encounter, against Stellenbosch FC in Cape Town, a fortnight ago.
Kaizer Chiefs won the cup match 3-0, with Khuzwayo recording a clean sheet in goal.
Team physiotherapist, Dave Milner, confirmed the news of the player’s impending surgery.
The unfortunate Khuzwayo will miss Chiefs’ next fixture, a Premier League clash against Mamelodi Sundowns, a home match at FNB Stadium on Soweto on 1 April.
