Katsande Gives Credit To Teammates & Coach

Kaizer Chiefs’ Willard Katsande was once again handed the ‘Man of the Match’ award for another composite performance in the heart of the Amakhosi midfield as they cruised to a comfortable 2-0 win over Golden Arrows in a league match on Wednesday night.

The Zimbabwean international was solid and controlled the midfield battle for his team, but he admits it was a tough game against a relegation threatened Arrows.

Katsande also added that the fact that Chiefs are playing catch-up in the league, which will see them in action every three days for the next two weeks, makes things all that much tougher.

“It is not easy to play catch-up games and we know it will be tough,” said Katsande.

“We knew that Golden Arrows was going to be tough because they are fighting relegation, so we were just looking for that one goal to give us confidence and for them to drop theirs.

“But credit to my teammates for their hard work tonight.”

Katsande was also quick to praise coach Stuart Baxter who he feels has given him the confidence to succeed this season.

“The coach has always had faith in me and spoke to me about my game, and tried to improve me by playing short and long,” said the Amakhosi midfielder.

“My job is to give balance to the team when going forward as well as when defending – I am just sticking to his ways (Stuart Baxter), it is helping me a lot.”
