Motaung Lauds Baxter

Kaizer Chiefs executive chairman and founding father of the club, Kaizer Motaung, expressed praise for coach Stuart Baxter, the players and the supporters after the Amakhosi lifted the 2012/13 Absa Premiership title on Saturday.

Motaung, though, before heaping praise on his team, admitted the final two games of the season were tough, a 1-1 draw with SuperSport United and the 1-0 loss to Tuks on Saturday

“I would like to congratulate Tuks for a very tough game. We knew all along that the last two games of the season were going to be the most difficult ones as you saw against SuperSport and this one today,” said Motaung.

“Today we should have wrapped it up in the first half, we had ample chances to wrap it up and of course this is the nature of this game, when you don’t use your chances you get punished and we experienced that today.

“Looking at the last eight years, though, yes it is true, it has been a long time coming, but last season towards the end we decided to take stock of where we were and where we wanted to go, and hence we made the changes that we made, and obviously there was a lot of criticism.

“Stuart Baxter’s stewardship of the team has been incredible and he has done well for his maiden season to be able to lift a very important trophy like this one.

“Obviously I must also give credit to the players and they have done themselves proud and written their own history.

“Credit must also go to the supporters who have been with us through and through.”
