Kaizer Chiefs promote goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma

Bvuma featured regularly for the Glamour Boys in the MultiChoice Diski Challenge, but he can now fancy his chances against the best in the PSL

Kaizer Chiefs have promoted goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma from their youth academy following Brilliant Khuzwayo's recent injury.

The 21-year-old had already been training with the first team, and Steve Komphela didn't want to find himself with a mini crisis in the goalkeeping department. 

This because Luthando Sixhaso is also struggling with injuries, while Brylon Petersen is still learning from his fellow teammates at Chiefs. 

Amakhosi quickly registered Bvuma with the Premier Soccer League, and therefore making him available for selection for the league encounter against Mamelodi Sundowns.

With Khuzwayo ruled out of action for the next eight weeks, and Sixhaso still recovering from a minor injury, Amakhosi fans can expect to see more of Bvuma on the bench in the coming weeks. 

Bvuma becomes Amakhosi's second signing in recent times following the club's decision to offer Wiseman Meyiwa a professional contract two weeks ago.
