Media reports surfaced on Sunday that Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma was earning a paltry R5 000 per month.
Social media didn't take kindly what they read on the news on Sunday, but the majority of fans sympathized with the 22-year-old lanky shot-stopper.

Bvuma is getting paid 5K at a big team like Chiefs? I forgive him for all those goals he conceded.

Bvuma story is very sad, especially with his competitor earning above R300K/month. That's more than his yearly income.

Some demanded answers from the club.
Why are you exploiting young talented people like Bvuma?! You guys should be ashamed of yourself.

First question is has Bvuma signed a new deal or is he still on the MDC one?

Did Bvuma leak the story to the media? Well, only time will tell, but some fans appear to think so.
So Bvuma ran to the papers
