Baxter Rules Out Late Chiefs Signings

Kaizer Chiefs’ head coach, Stuart Baxter, has ruled out any late signings for the Amakhosi this transfer window, insisting that he’s more than happy with his current squad.

What would get you talking in Fan Park? You tell us how to make Fan Park fly!

The Amakhosi have been relatively quiet in the last two weeks of the window, securing the likes of Levy Mokgothu, Siphelele Mthembu, Ovidy Karuru and Phakamani Mngadi weeks ago, and currently find themselves on a nine-game winning streak.

Chiefs have won all seven of their games so far this season, and also won their final two of the 2013/14 campaign, something that Baxter has credited to the level of consistency within his team.

Speaking to the media, Baxter said that it was an active choice to promote more youngsters rather than buy in bulk. He said, “We have some young players in our squad, and we’ve chosen that route. We’ve put down a development policy and you hope that we have the support of the fans.

“We’ve refused the temptation to buy, buy, buy, and we’ve left a few holes in the squad and filled it with youngsters. Some of the youngsters are gaining experience, and because we did that people like Mandla (Masango) and Mido (George Maluleka) are getting a chance.

“Sometimes it doesn’t work and you have to take the flack that comes, but this time around it seems to be going ok.

“We tried to bring Knowledge back, but that wasn’t possible because it ended up being such bad business to put down that sort of money for a period that was becoming smaller and smaller.

“We were offered a lot of players, but we decided not to panic buy and maintained our calm. These players have done well, let them have another window, and if we’re struggling come the next window then we may dabble there. We’re always monitoring the market, but right now the squad is doing a fantastic job.”
