JOHANNESBURG: Motaung says the club could not stand in his way after his request to seek for greener pastures elsewhere
Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung has wished goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo well in his future elsewhere after the club agreed to part ways with him following his request to be allowed to leave Naturena.
The 28-year-old Durban born shot stopper joined Amakhosi in 2012 but never really found himself as first keeper, playing back up to Itumeleng Khune to his frustration. Motaung says the club could not stand in his way after his request to seek for greener pastures elsewhere.
“Brilliant Khuzwayo approached the club asking for a blessing to move to another club at the end of the season. The main reason for his departure is for an opportunity to play more games because he is not getting any younger,” Motaung said.
“Brilliant gave us his all and we’ve given him our support throughout his stay with us. When a player has been good to the club and asks to spread his wings, we have to respect his wish. We would like to wish Brilliant well in his future endeavours. We thank him for his dedication and outstanding service to Amakhosi,” said Motaung on the club’s website.
Khuzwayo who only featured 37 times in his long stay at the club has been heavily linked with a switch to Chiefs’ arch rivals Orlando Pirates since he made his desire to leave the Glamour Boys public.
