Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Keagan Buchanan says that he wants to repay the faith shown by the South African club's chairman, Kaizer Motaung.
The former Bloemfontein Celtic playmaker joined Amakhosi last season, but is yet to cement a regular place in coach Steve Komphela's starting eleven.
However, speaking ahead of the new 2017/18 Premier Soccer League season, Buchanan says they have a competitive midfield and he wants to claim a spot in the team
Chiefs are set to renew their rivalry against fellow Soweto giants, Orlando Pirates this weekend in the Carling Black Label Champion Cup at FNB Stadium.
"We want to make the chairman happy. The supporters deserve something in the new season. A trophy is a must, because all of us are feeling the pain,” Buchanan told the Sowetan.
“It's not nice to go so long without a trophy for a team of our calibre. We have a competitive midfield, but I believe there's a place for me in there. I can bring in something different, a new dimension.
"I was out for 10 months - that's a long time. It took me some time to heal. But this time I have had full pre-season with the team, no injuries. So definitely I should get more game time than I did in my first season."
Buchanan will hope to make his mark this coming term and will also hope to play a major role this Saturday at the Calabash at 15:30 (CAT).
