Bvuma’s Contract Revealed As SAFPU Hit Out At Chiefs

SAFPU Have Hit Out At Kaizer Chiefs Over Bruce Bvuma

The South African Football Players’ Union have sent a copy of Bruce Bvuma’s Kaizer Chiefs contract to Soccer Laduma to prove that it was only signed this year. 
 
 
SAFPU’s President, Tebogo Monyai, spoke to the Siya crew today about Bvuma’s situation, with the player, who recently made his Bafana Bafana debut, having only seen his wage go up to R8000 from R5000 as was stated in the deal in March. Monyai says Chiefs have made no attempt to increase it.
 
While Soccer Laduma will not be publishing the contract out of respect for the club and player, SAFPU say that Chiefs made out that the 22-year-old was on a junior contract that came into place when he joined in 2013/14 and has refuted those claims as he continues their fight for a minimum wage in the PSL.
 
Chiefs said in a statement in June after the Bvuma revelations broke, “The club would like to place on record that Bvuma has been part of the Kaizer Chiefs development structures since 2013/14.
 
“It was not anticipated that the player would be involved with the senior squad this season. However, after both first team goalkeepers, Itumeleng Khune and Brilliant Khuzwayo, were sidelined through injury in March 2017, the club faced an emergency situation and, following a full assessment of the options available, elected to draft Bvuma into the senior squad.”
 
Now, Monyai has accused them of lying, confirming that the players’ deal was indeed signed in March of this year. He told the crew, “After that story broke Chiefs suggested that his contract was a junior one that was signed in 2013/14. 
 
 
“The problem is that they are lying. We have the contract and it was signed on March 28th 2017 when he was promoted, not before. We need to put pressure on them to improve the player’s package because it is still not good enough. It’s gone up to R8000 for the next year, but it’s still not enough for a first team player at a club like Kaizer Chiefs. On his current contract the maximum he will earn is R15,000 per month in 2020.
 
“The money that the boy is on cannot even pay for him to live somewhere. We’ve tried to engage Bobby but he’s very stubborn and not prepared to listen. We can’t just sit back and watch the player taken for granted.
 
“We’re fighting to have a minimum wage for entry level players in the PSL. For instance, Mamelodi Sundowns have an entry level salary of R40,000 for any player that signs a first team contract when coming up from their junior ranks. We think that the PSL should help us in our fight to champion players’ rights. We want to have a good working relationship between SAFPU and the PSL for the benefit of the players.”
 
Bvuma was on the bench for both of Chiefs’ Maize Cup games over the weekend, however, didn’t feature in either.

Employer/employee relationship is between two parties and in this case the player and his agent agreed to the salary. We don't know what is really going on here. The player comes from the development and he is growing with the team. SAPFU must do their work and if they cannot represent players then they must go play old crocks somewhere. Leave the boy alone.
