Baloyi urges Chiefs to trust reserve keepers

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 been great and the club bosses have since stated that they intend to sign a big-name replacement.

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.

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.
