Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp has made a humble request to the supporters about one of the team’s stars, who has been making a name for himself at the club.
In the match against Baroka FC on the weekend, the German coach substituted midfielder Kearyn Baccus late in the second half, after he had given him his third consecutive start of the campaign.
Seemingly, the substitution didn’t sit well with some sections of the supporters, who wanted their new star on the field for the rest of the match.
In his message to the supporters, the coach has explained the reasons behind some of the substitutions by the technical team.
“We are managing the players to remain fresh as we are faced with this back to back matches,” Middendorp commented, as quoted on Chiefs’ official website.
“Therefore, the supporters must be aware that we make substitutions and changes based on the information we gathered,” added the coach.
“It’s important to unite behind all the players. We have worked on recovery from the weekend. The doctors are working on the players that got injured to make sure we field the best team this evening,” said the coach.
Amakhosi will welcome Golden Arrows in their much-anticipated match at FNB Stadium tonight.
