Zuma ready to grab his opportunites at Kaizer Chiefs

Cape Town - Dumisani Zuma is keen to grab every available chance he gets as he tries to cement himself in the Kaizer Chiefs starting XI.

The forward had not played for two months this season before returning as a substitute against Polokwane City on 23 February.

The 23-year-old was then given only his second start of the season and he rewarded the faith shown in him by scoring in the 3-2 victory over Highlands Park last week.

In quotes published by KickOff website, Zuma said: "I haven't been playing for quite a while, so when I get a chance, I always try my best to deliver and make sure the fans are happy with the results.

"I was just doing my job. I don't know about the coach, but it was a confidence booster for me as well as the team. Now we want to keep the momentum going forward."

Zuma is in his second season with the Amakhosi but has not yet established himself at the Soweto giants since he signed from Bloemfontein Celtic.

The player though says coach Ernst Middendorp has spoken to him and he must be ready to grab his opportunity when they arrive.

Zuma continued: "I think it's okay, as long as I get the chance to play [eventually] and showcase my talent then I'm still fine.

"Maybe the coach wanted something from me and had expectations around my game that I wasn't doing, so I had to work so hard for the past two months and maybe that's why I’m playing right now.

"He just told me to work hard in training and maybe I'll get a chance to play."
