SAFPU Step In To Help Chiefs’ Keeper Amid Wage Debacle

Kaizer Chiefs' Bruce Bvuma Is Meeting With SAFPU

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 22, 2017 09:09 AM
The South African Football Players’ Union are stepping in to try and help Kaizer Chiefs’ Bruce Bvuma settle the matter surrounding his alleged R5000 per month contract.
 
 
Bvuma’s name has been all over the news since it was revealed that he was earning such a small wage with the Amakhosi despite having made his professional debut at the club and SAFPU say that they will be meeting him to discuss the way forward.
 
The organisation’s General Secretary, Thulaganyo Gaoshubelwe, said in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, “We’ve started engaging with the player and the agent to see how best we can deal with the matter. Once we have met with him, then we can start to plot the way forward.
 
“As soon as the boy signed a PSL contract, he signed a professional contract, otherwise he wouldn’t be eligible to play.
 
“People must stop being ignorant and thinking that this is about this club or that club. Why do people believe that Maritzburg would pay this sort of wage but not Chiefs? This is a problem that is widespread in South Africa. That’s why it needs to be regulated and have a proper minimum wage. It’s exploitation.” 
 
 
Meanwhile, the player’s representative, DJ Cleo of DCF Sports, would not comment on the figures, although did confirm that the player has signed a professional contract.
 
He said, “Look, I’m not going to talk about the terms of my players’ contract as it wouldn’t be fair to the player or the club, but I can confirm that he’s on a professional deal and not an academy one.”

I am not sure how this matter reached the media and is now with the Union. The Agent has been asked but we have heard nothing from the player in question. The team has commented and so is the Agent and media. Let u hear the side of the player.

who said chiefs is not gonna Pay Bruce?Bvuma was playing in the MDC then Chiefs decided to call him after Khune and Khuzwayo got injured where he signed a professional contract and I hope they (Chiefs & Bruce's representatives) did negotiate and reach an agreement before he joins the Senior team.
