Richards Defends Baxter On Youngsters

Kaizer Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter has received lots of criticism over the use of youngsters at the club but a former midfielder has defended him.

Amakhosi are on their seventh season without a trophy and supporters are running out of patience with Baxter, though he only returned last year to replace Gavin Hunt, who led Chiefs to their first ever CAF champions league final despite having a poor domestic season at the club.

However, former midfielder, Rene Richards says that for Chiefs to go a year without a trophy - is not the culture of the club and with the club on their seven-year trophy drought, he feels maybe it is about time they focus more on youth players.

"It not like Chiefs to not win a trophy, I mean they should take a cup every season, as I said before maybe it is about time they give youngsters an opportunity, trust them to revive this club,” Richards told the Siya crew. 

"I can't say he doesn't believe in youngsters because he called me to the national team to play CONFED Cup and we had a very young team then.

"In terms of him leaving I really can't comment on that.”
