Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper, Bruce Bvuma has revealed that seeing his teammates from the development sides brings a good feeling but was sad that Nkosingiphile Ngcobo got injured just after getting his first break at the senior team.

He said they had gone through some struggles to finally get their chance at Amakhosi but it pained him that that Ngcobo will be out until the end of the season.

The 18-year-old Ngcobo suffered a long term injury in Amakhosi’s game against SuperSport United at Mbombela Stadium on March 15. He was part of the group of youngsters who were promoted and given a chance by Ernst Middendorp.

“I am happy because I have worked with these guys from the development sides. We know all the struggles we went through to get here. To see them with the senior team is great. I’d like to thank the coach for giving us a chance. This is a big team and the expectation is for the team to always win and it’s rare for a coach to believe in youngsters in such situations. I hope we will grab the opportunity with both hands,” said Bvuma recently.

Ngcobo had also helped the national Under-20, Amajita side to qualify for the World Cup but will likely miss the main event.

“It’s really sad because they have just qualified for the World Cup but now he will not be able to make the squad because of the injury. I feel sad for him. But only God knows why, it is all His plan,” said Bvuma.
