Could Baxter’s Selection Blunder Cost Amakhosi The League?

Brilliant Khuzwayo has been nothing short of just that, brilliant! And coming back from a rather disappointing Africa Cup of Nations campaign with Bafana Bafana, the 25-year-old shot-stopper has had to spend much of his time playing second fiddle to fan-favourite, Itumeleng Khune, once again.

It is no secret that Khune is loved by arguably every single Amakhosi supporter out there, and some were even calling for his comeback during Khuzwayo's heroic performances. 

In an effort to slowly bring Khune back into the set-up, coach Stuart Baxter has been rotating the two talented goalkeepers, with Khuzwayo seemingly getting the raw end of the stick.

It seems the goalkeeping rotation policy is unsettling the Kaizer Chiefs defensive system, with Amakhosi conceding more goals from set-pieces despite having the tall duo of Eric Mathoho and Tefu Mashamaite at the back.

Last night’s victory over Moroka Swallows was the first convincing win the team has tasted in the league in 2015, and while the goalkeeper switch may have worked last night, one also has to remember it was against a struggling side.

Do you think Baxter should have continued to play Khuzwayo and not make changes to a working system?
