Kaizer Chiefs put on a stunning performance at the FNB Stadium on Tuesday night.
The Glamour Boys bounced back from their opening loss against Royal AM with a solid performance against Maritzburg United.
Goals by Ashley Du Preez, Keagan Dolly and Mduduzi Shabalala earned the Amakhosi a 3-0 victory on the night.
While it was an emphatic attacking performance by Arthur Zwane’s side, the Kaizer Chiefs has singled out two surprise names as star players on the night!
Two Kaizer Chiefs players that impressed Zwane revealed!
The Amakhosi mentor made special mention of defender Zitha Kwinika and goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma.
“I think our defence did very well, led by Zitha Kwinika, so ja the defence did very well.” The Kaizer Chiefs coach told SuperSport TV after the match.
“What is important today is us keeping a clean sheet. Also Bruce Bvuma did very well but made a few errors that he needs to work on.
“Going forward is never going to be easy, we still have a very long way to go. It’s that in as much as we’re in a rebuilding phase but we’re still grinding results.
“But I’m so proud of mostly the Kaizer Chiefs youngsters. You know who came on and kept the very same tempo.
“They took the game to the opposition because were already worried that they dropped the tempo at some point.
“And allowed them back into the game and their confidence grew. They could score at any given time from dead-ball situations or open play.
“But I must give credit to their team, they’ve got a very good team and a good coach but it wasn’t to be in terms of them getting a goal today.
