Zwane explains tearful Bvuma scenes

CAF Champions League

Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach Arthur Zwane has explained why goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma was reduced to tears after their CAF Champions League first leg semi-final win over Wydad Atheltic Club.

Bvuma retained his spot in the starting line-up for Chiefs in their historic clash against the Botola league leaders and produced an inspiring display as they defied all odds with a 1-0 win in Casablanca.

At the full-time whistle, he notably dropped down to the ground, visibly emotional, as Zwane and teammates consoled him after a Man of the Match display.

"I think Bruce is growing in stature and working very hard as a young man. We're very close to each other, we used to be in the development [together]. So before the game, I told him that it's key for him to keep a clean sheet," he said after the game.

"I told him to make sure we don't concede and it will go a long way, especially for your career and it happened exactly how we planned it. Maybe that is why he broke down after the game because he was obviously happy not to concede.

"But we still have another ninety minutes to play and then to make sure, we keep [another] clean sheet and make sure that we get another goal to wrap it up at home."

Chiefs will now welcome the two-time Champions League winners for the return leg at FNB Stadium next Saturday 26 June.
