Brilliant Khuzwayo’s name has inexplicably gone missing from Orlando Pirates’ list of goalkeepers on its website.

The talented keeper, who joined the Buccaneers at the start of last season from Kaizer Chiefs, has been battling a longterm ankle injury.

He didn’t feature in Pirates’ games last season and was withdrawn from Saturday’s Carling Black Label Cup squad list.

According to coach Milutin Sredojevic, Khuzwayo’s withdrawal was based on medical advice.

He added that the 29-year-old star’s return will be subject to a medical clearance.

It is something beyond my authority. Medical people are coming and giving advice and we cannot go beyond that.
