Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter doesn’t trust Kgotso Moleko at right back and Lucky Baloyi on the holding role.
Willard Katsande and Siboniso Gaxa are already dead in those positions to say the least. Baloyi is not a rough player like Katsande, and he can score goals.
Gaxa can’t defend, he can’t produce good crosses either, and that makes him a useless player on the pitch. Moleko can defend, but not good going forward.
Kingston Nkhatha is not a Kaizer Chiefs material, but he always gets ahead of Lehlohonolo Majoro. Knowledge Musona is still the same old Musona, missing a lot of chances and scoring only one in a match.
George Lebese is the best crosser of the ball currently at Chiefs, but the problem he blows hot and cold. Mandla Masango also needs game time to gain his confidence.
Siphiwe Tshabalala and Reneilwe Letsholonyane are clearly off-form since the season started. Siyabonga Nkosi and Josta Dladla replace them; they look hungrier than ever.
The tactics used by Baxter are not part of our culture – skop and donor is not what I used to watch in the past. Negative approaches in recent derbies have proven Baxter doesn’t understand our culture.
At Chiefs we need players who dribble and entertain us in stadiums.
Baxter is addicted to these players;
· Willard Katsande
· Kingston Nkhatha
· Ivan Bukenya
We wanted Khulegani Madondo, we got Ivan Bukenya. Target man football with long balls and counters, it won’t work in derbies.
We should have bought Luyolo Nomandela or Khama Billiat, but Baxter said the team is ok. Tshabalala at right wing is very poor and selfish. We are heading for a poor season.
