Zuma envisions lifting silverware with Chiefs

Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs forward Dumisani Zuma says his first goal for the club has handed him a huge boost ahead of the second-half of the Absa Premiership season.

The 22-year-old arrived at Naturena in the off-season on a free transfer after establishing himself as a tricky winger for Bloemfontein Celtic.

However, the South Africa youth international has struggled for game time at Chiefs and has yet to earn his first start under Steve Komphela.

But after scoring the only goal in the 1-0 victory over Ajax Cape Town before the mid-season break, Zuma is keen to get his career on track with the Glamour Boys.

"I was so happy when I saw the net rattled. I got lost in the excitement and only realised what the goal meant to the supporters when I saw the recordings afterwards," he told the club's official website.

"It was great to receive so much praise from my team-mates. The coach also expressed his gratitude and encouraged me to keep it up.

"I will continue working hard. I want to keep scoring to improve the chances of us lifting trophies."

Zuma will now be pushing for a more prominent role in the first team after 11 substitute appearances in the first half of the campaign.

Amakhosi return to action on Saturday, January 6 at the Mbombela Stadium where they face SuperSport United.

Kick-off is at 18:00.
