Kaizer Chiefs | Baxter names ONE underrated star that made Amakhosi ‘tick’

Kaizer Chiefs | Baxter names ONE underrated star that made Amakhosi ‘tick’

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter has admitted that their goalless draw against Marumo Gallants was difficult as the pressure continues to mount on him.

On the night, Gallants looked more threatening than Chiefs, but Baxter feels the introduction of Bernard Parker made a huge difference.

According to Baxter, Chiefs didn’t play with the right intensity, especially in the first half but he believes the second half was better as Parker improved their play.

And Baxter’s praise for Parker would definitely not sit well with a section of Chiefs fans who have been calling for the veteran midfielder to be benched.

“I think it was a very difficult game for either team to make any headway. As I said before the game, set-plays was a way to win the game,” Baxter told SuperSport TV.

“I wasn’t happy with our intensity, I wasn’t happy with our possession. At half-time we changed things a little bit, we put Bernard (Parker) on. Lebo (Manyama) tried his best but he is still a little bit short.

“Bernard came on and gave us a little bit extra. We arrived at the box a little bit more. We played better, but as you say, clear-cut chances, difficult one,” added Baxter.
