How Chiefs Will Benefit From The International Break

With the international break providing a bit of a reprieve from domestic action, here are four positives Kaizer Chiefs and Stuart Baxter can benefit from during this next week.

Players Have Time To Rest
While Shakes Mashaba has selected a number of Chiefs players for the two friendly games, the majority of the team will remain behind and it will be a welcome break. This will allow them a break from a taxing competitive match schedule, and they can restore some strength. 

Baxter Can Prep Doc & His Squad For His Absence
Stuart Baxter will be absent for Chiefs’ next two domestic matches, and this will certainly weigh heavily on the boys. This international week will help Baxter prepare the squad to cope during his absence.

New Tactics Can Be Tested
Many have stated that Baxter’s game is becoming more predictable for teams, and that clubs are finding it easier to deal with Chiefs nowadays… Well, this break will allow Baxter time to go back to the drawing board to formulate some new tactics with his charges. 

Media Pressure Will Turn To Bafana
The media constantly has any eye on PSL clubs, and with Chiefs leading the race, the spotlight seems to be brighter for them. Following their recent results and the lack of players extending their contracts, there has been some public pressure. However, with Bafana Bafana set to steal the headlines in international week, this could cool things down for Amakhosi. 

Khosi fans, what other positives can you think of?
