Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed the signing of Virgil Vries ahead of the new season.

The Namibian international parted ways with Baroka FC recently after just one season with the Limpopo outfit and will now become part of Amakhosi’s side.

Vries comes in as a replacement for Brilliant Khuzwayo, who has joined Orlando Pirates. Khuzwayo spent years as an understudy to number one goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune and decided to make a move in search of regular game-time.

Khuzwayo revealed in a radio interview that he asked to at least play the cup matches, but nothing came of his request.

Vries, who started out as a regular at Baroka before dropping to the bench, will know that he has been signed as back-up and will not expect to get regular game-time at Naturena.

“After Brilliant Khuzwayo left, we wanted to get a seasoned goalkeeper to assist Itumeleng Khune,” the club’s football manager Bobby Motaung told the Amakhosi website.

“We have a few talented youngsters like Bruce Bvuma and Brylon Petersen who need to work with experienced keepers. We welcome Virgil.”

Bruce Bvuma is another shot-stopper who will be pushing Khune and Vries in the coming campaign.
