Zuma motivated to succeed with Amakhosi

Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs winger Dumisani Zuma says he remains as motivated as ever to make his mark at the Soweto giants despite playing a bit-part role thus far.

Since joining Amakhosi in the off-season on a free transfer from Bloemfontein Celtic, the 22-year-old has failed to earn a single start in all competitions.

With only 132 minutes of first-team football under head coach Steve Komphela, the South Africa youth international understands there's major pressure on himself to force his way into the team.

As Komphela moved to a new 3-5-2 formation, the absence of a winger in the team has been evident which has made the task for Zuma to break into the squad all the more challenging.

"Yes, there’s pressure on me to do well here at Chiefs. I also want to make a name for myself like they did, and I will make sure I make use of the chances I get," he told reporters ahead of the Free State Stars encounter on Saturday.

"The little game time I am getting serves as motivation for me to do well. It keeps me going, and I believe soon I will score that goal."
