Bruce Bvuma and Kaizer Chiefs switch focus to a CAF spot as a consolation

Kaizer Chiefs number-one goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma says they’ve switched their focus to chasing a CAF inter-club spot in the remaining league games.

Chiefs’ exit in the Nedbank Cup, at the hands of Motsepe Foundation Championship side Milford FC has not been well received by the Chiefs’ faithful.

Speaking ahead of their DStv Premiership game against Moroka Swallows at FNB Stadium tomorrow evening, Bvuma says qualifying for a CAF competition is a must.

"The mandate has always been, especially for the league for us to finish as high as possible, at least get back to CAF. I think that will be a good sign for us as players and as a club that we are working hard. So, we're looking forward to playing the remaining league games and performing and winning and making sure that we're getting back to the CAF competitions," Bvuma said.

Bvuma, who has come through the club’s development structures, belongs to a generation of Chiefs players who have not experienced the joy and happiness of lifting a trophy.

He says the nine-year trophy drought is also bothering them as players.

"We are very much aware of the trophy drought that we are facing here at Chiefs. As I mentioned, growing up I was a Kaizer Chiefs supporter. I've seen Kaizer Chiefs winning, I've celebrated those trophies while I was a supporter and for me as a player, it will be great to be able to lift some trophies with me,” Bvuma added.

“Right now, I feel like we are in a season where we are still learning but we're definitely working on it. As I mentioned we are very much aware of us not and we know that Kaizer Chiefs as a big team as it is, it's required for us to bring a trophy or two each and every season. So, we are working hard as a team and we will definitely fix that."
