Bvuma: Chiefs produce the best 'keepers


Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma has claimed that Kaizer Chiefs produce the best shot-stoppers among all the clubs in the PSL.

Fresh from receiving a call-up to the Bafana Bafana squad for this month's international friendlies against Guinea and France, Kaizer Chiefs 'keeper Bruce Bvuma has lauded his club's goalkeeping department as the best in the country.

"Kaizer Chiefs is known for producing the best 'keepers and me being part of Kaizer Chiefs' goalkeepers means a lot," he told the club's website. "We have four international goalkeepers right now, competing each and every week, and it feels great to be part of this group."

Bvuma has predominantly competed with Itumeleng Khune for a spot as Chiefs' third-choice goalkeeper behind Daniel Akpeyi and Brandon Petersen this season but earned another national team call-up after the latter sustained an untimely injury.

"Every player wants to play for the national team, especially in my case as I have not been playing," he added. "Here I am in the national team. It is all by the grace of God. I get the favour from God and not anyone else. I have to keep on working hard so I perform when I am given the chance."

The 26-year-old, who is a graduate of the Chiefs academy, has kept eight clean sheets in 28 appearances for the club since making his senior debut in 2017, and has won three caps with Bafana Bafana to date.
