The Kaizer Chiefs have released several players who will not be part of the first team for the upcoming season.
The Kaizer Chiefs’ management understands the need of treading carefully in what is expected to be a significant reshuffling of their playing roster.
As of yet, only Erick Mathoho has officially departed Naturena after more than a decade, but more players are expected to follow.
According to a Transfermarkt article, Bruce Bvuma and Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana are the two players that are now on loan at Chiefs.
Bvuma was used infrequently by Arthur Zwane this season, appearing in only four games and surrendering seven goals.
In reality, since his promotion to the first squad in 2016, the 28-year-old shot-stopper has never seen regular game action.
And the stats are clear, with Bvuma having only played 37 competitive games for Chiefs in the last seven years.
Caleb, on the other hand, joined the Chiefs at the start of the season and, while he scored early on, he eventually proved to be a burden.
In 21 competitive matches with Chiefs, the Burundi international scored eight goals, the majority of which came from the penalty spot.
“Furthermore, goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma and striker Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana are living on borrowed time,” the article said.
“Bvuma may be on his way out in search of more game time in what is expected to be a permanent move, and Bimenyimana is no longer in the club’s plans,” the source continued.
