‘Kizza’ On Chiefs Debut As Leopards Fight Beckons

Kaizer Chiefs debutant, Kearyn Baccus, has opened up about making his Amakhosi debut in front of a capacity crowd last weekend, calling his new employers a ‘massive team’.
 
 
The 27-year-old midfield man didn’t waste any time getting into Ernst Middendorp’s plans as he went straight into the XI for the opening game against Highlands Park, providing an assist for Lebogang Manyama as the Glamour Boys picked up a 3-2 victory, and is expected to feature once more against Black Leopards when the teams meet this evening.
 
Now, with the club chasing back-to-back wins for the first time since March, the former Melbourne City man has spoken of how it felt to get out there on the field in Makhulong in front of the noisy Amakhosi faithful.
 
Speaking to the club’s official website after getting his first 45 minutes in the gold and black, ‘Kizza’ said, “It was a great feeling to make a start for the team… I am glad to be part of this massive team. I am always ready at any time when required to play.
 
“I was happy to be in the starting line-up. It was good to see so many Kaizer Chiefs supporters in and around the stadium. The supporters turned up in big numbers which is a boost for the season… The stadium was packed, and the spectators were loud and cheering us on.
 
 
“The pitch was very difficult to play on. Also, we were caught off guard by their long balls. It was good to get a win and start the season with three points.”
 
Baccus has already equalled his record of last season after he got one assist in 30 games in all competitions for City in Australia, and he’ll be hoping that it won’t be the last goal contribution he makes in his debut Amakhosi campaign.
