The former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper was force into early retirement by a recurring injury.

Sukazi says the former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper still believed he could play and didn’t want to retire.

“Khuzwayo was still hungry to play football. It was not easy to make him understand,” Sukazi told the media.

“We made some financial considerations. The situation was, ‘it’s either you retire and get compensation now or carry on with playing’ which was a risk. So, we had to weigh in between those two choices which helped us to come up with a decision.

“There were doctors who came with different suggestions which made it hard for us to come up with such a decision.”
