Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs stopper Brian Baloyi has
urged his former club to put their trust in their reserve goalkeepers.
First choice gloveman Itumeleng Khune is set to miss the
remainder of the 2018/2019 season with a shoulder injury, putting Virgil Vries
in the hot seat.
Unfortunately for the Amakhosi he has not performed well, and
the club bosses have since stated that they intend to sign a big-name
However, Baloyi - who worked as goalkeeper coach for Chiefs
last year - believes reserve keepers Bruce Bavuma and Brylon Petersen should
get a shot instead.
“This is the best time for the club to take a chance on the
boys that they have,” Baloyi told Soccer Laduma website.
“I don’t think Chiefs are in a corner. I think Bruce is
ready, I think they should start playing him in the Nedbank Cup for instance.”
Chiefs will now turn their focus to their upcoming encounter
in the Nedbank Cup against Tornado FC this weekend.
