Baxter: Musona’s Goal Will Do Him Good

Kaizer Chiefs head coach, Stuart Baxter, says that Knowledge Musona’s goal for Zimbabwe against Bafana Bafana will do his confidence a whole lot of good.

The striker, who returned to Chiefs on loan at the beginning of the season, is yet to score his first league goal this campaign but put in a good performance against Gordon Igesund’s side this week, topping off his game with a well-finished strike.

Speaking to Chiefs’ official website Baxter said, “The goal Knowledge (Musona) scored against Bafana on Tuesday will do his confidence a whole lot of good. He was also among the scorers on Sunday when we had a friendly match against Mpumalanga Black Aces. Bernard Parker also scored a beautiful goal against Zimbabwe having grabbed a brace last Saturday against Botswana.

“We are pleased with the performance of all the players who played in the past week for their respective national teams and that all of them came back with no injury concerns.

“Preparations for the game have gone very well. We had a friendly on Sunday against Mpumalanga Black Aces where we were able to look at some players and different combinations.

“I do not feel we have had a bad start as the team but certainly we will be looking to comeback following our defeat away to SuperSport United. The players are aware that the league is going to be tougher this season. Teams have strengthened their squads and also brought in new coaches. This requires us to work twice as hard.”

Meanwhile, Ugandan defender Ivan Bukenya began training with the club at Naturena yesterday as the Amakhosi’s technical team look at whether he is deserving of a deal at the club or not.
