Bvuma: We want to end the drought

Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper, Bruce Bvuma, insists that Amakhosi want to win the Nedbank Cup to end trophyless eight-year drought.

Arthur Zwane’s team is 27 points behind log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns in the DStv Premiership and the Nedbank Cup is the only realistic chance of the team ending the season with silverware.

They beat Maritzburg United 2-0 in their last 32, to set up a tie against Motsepe Championship side Casric Stars in the round of 16.

“When we signed up for Kaizer Chiefs we knew that there will be pressure [to win]”, Bvuma said during the Nedbank Cup media day.

“There will always be pressure [to win] and we perform better under pressure, there is nothing new about it.

We grew up watching Kaizer Chiefs and we know what the club has done over the years. We also want to be part of the history – win trophies and motivate youngsters to want to come to Chiefs.

It’s been eight years since we won a trophy and we want to break that drought and win more silverware.”

The 27-year-old started the first three matches of the season and since then Zwane has used Itumeleng Khune and Brandon Peterson.

“We have good goalkeepers and the competition is very high. At the moment Brendon is doing well and other keepers are giving him all the support that he needs.

“As someone who is not playing, I just have to keep on working hard to make sure that I’m ready because you will never know what is going to happen.

The coach tells us, we just have to keep on working hard and the chance will come.”
