Brian Baloyi worried about the consistency of Kaizer Chiefs goalkeepers

Kaizer Chiefs legend Brian “Spiderman” Baloyi expresses deep concern regarding the inconsistency among the trio of goalkeepers, namely Itumeleng Khune, Brandon Peterson, and Bruce Bvuma.

The Soweto giants have witnessed a lack of consistency in the goalkeeping position, with Peterson participating in eight games, followed by Khune with four appearances, and Bvuma featuring in just one DStv Premiership match.  Baloyi asserts that none of the goalkeepers have proven deserving of the coveted number one jersey for the club.Amakhosi occupies seventh position on the league table with 13 matches played.

Speaking to SABC Sport Baloyi emphasizes that the goalkeeping department must elevate its performance for the club to enhance its domestic standings.He challenges the trio to push each other and extract the best from one another within goalkeeping.

“Khune, as the club’s captain, is grappling with weight issues that demand attention. His inconsistency on the field raises concerns, and there’s a need for him to set an example for the team. The young goalkeepers, in particular, should aspire to emulate him, but this journey begins with on-field performance.

Peterson, unfortunately, tends to make errors in nearly every game, and Bvuma, when given the opportunity, also falls prey to mistakes. Dealing with mistakes is a mental challenge, as it involves overcoming errors and shifting focus towards the future rather than dwelling on them,” said Baloyi.

“To me, it’s all about handling setbacks, and that’s the essence of goalkeeping. Introducing a new goalkeeper is unnecessary; all three of them possess skills. They need to minimize errors, and with that, the club can achieve a successful season,” remarked Baloyi.
