Cape Town - Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Jackson Mabokgwane believes the
presence of Brilliant Khuzwayo in the goalkeeping department provides a healthy
rivalry at the club.
Khuzwayo arrived from Kaizer Chiefs prior to the 2018/19
campaign and reports suggested he was earmarked to be first choice shot-stopper
at Mayfair under coach Milutin Sredojevic.
However, the ex-Amakhosi number two has been ruled out for
up to a month with injury and it appears either Mabokgwane, Siyabonga
Mpontshane or Wayne Sandilands could start against Highlands Park on the
weekend in the Premiership.
Speaking to Kickoff, the 30-year-old said: "The season
is starting and we're looking forward to it. Like I've always said before on
the competition, for me, I don't view other goalkeepers as competition, we are
"Of course, I am at a club where I'm employed to do a
job and to help the team. I look into my own games and I try to improve from my
previous game or the previous season.
"That's definitely how I look at it. It's not so much
about who else played and (how they performed), I just always analyse my own
games and performances and try and do better."
