Baxter On Parker, Majoro Bust-Up

In today’s edition of Soccer-Laduma, issue 845, the Siya crew reported that Bernard Parker and Lehlohonolo Majoro were involved in a training ground bust-up last week, ahead of the Soweto derby between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.

Although Chiefs’ head coach Stuart Baxter confirmed that there was a squabble between the two Amakhosi players, he says that the incident may have been blown out of proportion.

"You know what, the way it is written up in your paper is pretty accurate. But maybe things have been blown out of proportion here a little bit,” stated Baxter.

He went on, “Yes, there was an incident, but by the next morning the two players concerned had shook hands and all was forgotten. Look, I don't like players getting into it at training, but to a certain extent there needs to be that energy and bite at training sessions.

“Sometimes it boils over, especially when players are competing for places. I've seen it written in the media that I should have intervened earlier, believe me if I were intervening and trying to keep things calm at training every session, then I would be living in Katsande's shorts (laughing). 

“Look, I think it's like you reported. These kind of things happen at training grounds all over the world and it's not a new thing. Actually come to think of it, it doesn't happen that much here because we have quite a tight group of lads.

“But that said, it's been blown out of proportion a little bit and we're not trying to spin this or deflect this. I think it's something that has happened on the training pitch, it was not such a big thing to us but has become a much bigger thing outside of us.”
