Zwane Explains Bvuma Breakdown
Kaizer Chiefs assistant coach Arthur Zwane has explained why Bruce Bvuma broke down to tears after the final whistle in his side’s CAF Champions League victory over Wydad Casablanca.
The 47-year-old along with Dillon Sheppard were in charge of the game, while the club is waiting for Stuart Baxter’s work permit.
They made the bold call to start Bvuma over Itumeleng Khune and Daniel Akpeyi, with 26-year-old goalkeeper repaying the faith by putting in a Man of the Match performance.
After the final whistle, though, Bvuma broke down and Zwane explained a bit of what went through his players’ mind.
“Look, I think, Bruce is growing in stature, working very hard as a young man,” he said in his post-match press conference.
“Because we are very close, we’ve worked with each other in the development. Before the game I told him that it’s very important in this game to keep a clean sheet and make sure that we don’t concede. It will go a long way, especially for his career.”
Zwane also insisted that it’s only half-time in the tie and Chiefs will have another tough match in the reverse fixture next weekend.
“It happened as we planned it, we didn’t concede. Maybe that is why he broke down because he was obviously happy that he didn’t concede.
“But we still have another 90 minutes to play and have to make sure that we maybe we get another clean sheet and try to get another goal.”
