Kaizer Chiefs debut a dream come true for Bruce Bvuma despite the loss


The 21-year-old found himself thrust into the limelight when an injury to Itumeleng Khune ruled Mzansi's number one out of the midweek game to Cape Town City.

Whilst the result did not go Amakhosi's way the young stopper felt as though he gave it his all and is still coming to terms with having made his first start. 

“I felt it was a dream. I didn’t and still can’t believe it. Even when I got home, I still thought it was a dream," he told the club's official website.

“I was a bit nervous. My teammates spoke to me and told me to enjoy the moment. I knew it was going to be tough but I gave it my all during the match. I settled down quickly in the game.”

Bvuma noted that having suffered a defeat at the hands of the Citizens did leave him disappointed as he had envisaged a win in his first start.

“It is sad that we lost. Forget about my debut and think of how as a team we tried and gave our all. Personally, I wanted to debut with a win and introduce myself with a good performance. But, the team comes first,” he said.
