In his interview in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, Willard Katsande revealed that he and his teammates at Kaizer Chiefs will miss Kingston Nkhatha’s presence in the team.
Chiefs’ coach, Stuart Baxter, seems to be sharing the same sentiments about the Zimbabwean striker who is playing for SuperSport United these days.
Nkhatha scored on debut for Matsatsantsa against his former club, Free State Stars, on Wednesday last week.
The 29-year-old was impressive for Gordon Igesund’s side, when SuperSport handed Chiefs their first loss of the season, during their 2-0 Absa Premiership win at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Tuesday.
Baxter says he does not want to play Bernard Parker as the number nine in his team.
“We lost Kingston. I don't like playing Parker as a number 9. We still trying to find a balance. Parker is not Nkhatha,” Baxter is quoted saying on the PSL’s official Twitter account.
However, Baxter does not want to dwell much on Nkhatha, but on the players he is working with at Chiefs.
“You always miss your good players. To say I miss Kingston means I don’t have trust in other players. That is incorrect,” the PSL tweeted.
The Amakhosi will want to perform well against Edu Sports in the Nedbank Cup, following their disappointment on Tuesday.
