Bruce Bvuma parents have been quite supportive of their son’s career. When he was a young boy, he would spend time with his father, and they would not miss watching the Soweto Derby at the famous FNB stadium.
Interestingly, last year, the goalie would have his first big match at the same stadium. This time, they would not be sitting together with his father, as he would be doing what he does best in the field. He revealed:
It is one of the biggest games I will ever play. It brings back the memories of the times my father would take me to the stadium to watch the game. When I saw I would be starting, I called him and told him he couldn’t miss this one. I know he is busy with his things, but I told him I want him to be there to watch me play in this game for the first time.
Mistakes are part of the game. I have a clear mind about my role. I am not putting myself under any pressure and am not thinking about what would happen if I make mistakes. I believe I was born ready. There are no friendly games in the derby. I can’t wait for the game.
I want to be there and show what I am capable of. Now is the time for me to stamp my authority in the team.
I believe that with God on my side, I will perform and do well.
The goalie has had an opportunity to play with some of the leading teams in the country. He started in Soweto where he played for the Wits. He later joined the Chiefs after displaying talent and skill in the game.
Limpopo is my home, but I spent most of my time in Soweto. I started playing football there, playing for Wits. While I was at Wits, we were playing in the same league as Chiefs. They liked me and asked if I could join them – and I did.
I have spent the last two years playing at the team in the Multi-Choice Diski Challenge and the SAB League. It has been a good journey for me, and I have learned a lot. I just have to continue learning and improving my game.
