Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper, Brilliant Khuzwayo has revealed that he is a highly confident person and that collecting the ball three times from the net in Amakhosi’s last Absa Premiership outing has not affected him much.

Khuzwayo was in the poles for Amakhosi as regular No. 1, Itumeleng Khune was out injured in the 3-1 defeat to Chippa United.

“The team lost, that is what hurt me. But everything I do is not for Brilliant personally but for Chiefs. Even if I am not playing and the team wins, I celebrate because that is what matters,” said Khuzwayo on Monday.

He added: “Conceding three goals… it can happen to any keeper.”

He said having to wait for his chance has kept him motivated and he doesn’t find it difficult to adjust when called upon to do duty for the team.

“I am always working hard waiting for my chance, and when I do get it I try to show what I can give for the team. I am a very confident man, and always ready for my chance,” said the 26-year-old from Umlazi.

He said the team have been unlucky lately hence the run of bad results which has led to increased calls for coach, Steve Komphela’s head.

“I think our problem has been a lack of luck. We do everything right, but we have lacked the luck.” He also said they believe their strikers will soon be firing on all cylinders as they usually do at training.

“We believe in our strikers, we know they can do the job. We see them every day at training scoring goals and that is why we believe in them. They just need a bit of luck.”
