Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic is not planning on rushing Brilliant Khuzwayo into action, as the goalkeeper continues his recovery from injury.

Khuzwayo was signed from Soweto rivals Kaizer Chiefs in the off-season, but has yet to feature for the Buccaneers, having picked up a problem with his ankle.

"First of all, I'm very happy to coach this group of players and Brilliant Khuzwayo is the top-class personality out on the field of play," 'Micho' was quoted as saying by Soccer Laduma website.

"Any coach will be happy to have such a positive person in the team that gives the tone and makes the mood, pushing to the right direction, I'd say he's working very hard.

"On (when he'll be back in the team), we shall not rush because the operation has gone and the problems that he has and the way to come back is (that he is) hard-working, he's on the good road.

"But when this will come, we shall make so many filters, medical filter and technical filter and goalkeeping coach filter and so many filters before. We use him, utilise him in the best possible way."

After struggling to break into the team at Chiefs due to the good form of Itumeleng Khune, Khuzwayo will be eager to make his mark at Mayfair.
