Mamelodi Sundowns

Manqoba Reserves Special Praise For Baxter

Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi had some kind words for Stuart Baxter after their penalty shoot-out victory over Kaizer Chiefs in the MTN8.

The Brazilians advanced to the semi-finals after defeating the Soweto giants on penalties, after it ended 2-2 in extra-time on Sunday afternoon.

Mngqithi admits Chiefs were a problem on transition and set-pieces, which he feels is down Baxter.

"I want to give credit to Stuart," the Sundowns co-coach told SuperSport after the game.

"I think he organises his team very well. With the little he may have in terms of resources at time, I really believe he makes it very difficult for any team that plays against Chiefs.

"This game could easily have gone either way because on transition they were a problem. On set-pieces they were a problem. We must give credit to him. He's a very good coach and I like him.

"It was our wish to go to the semi-finals and the boys fought very hard for it. We must give credit to them. They worked very hard. I was proud but more than anything else we still have another step to go. We must take it step by step. But it's our wish, our desire that we can win this trophy and we are going all out for it."
