Speaking to Soccer Laduma in an exclusive interview in edition 963, the former Absa Premiership winning coach, highlighted the Glamour Boys’ intention of youth implementation, but suggested that it has taken longer than expected.

“Kaizer Motaung has invested a lot of money and time into developing the younger players at the academy at Naturena. But I think, probably, it is taking longer than they would have hoped,” Baxter said.

Sections of the Amakhosi fraternity have been calling for the inclusion of more of the club’s talented youngsters. The likes of Multi-Choice Diski Challenge top-scorer, Emmanuel Letlotlo, who fans believe has been overlooked despite reportedly attracting PSL attention from the likes of Mpumalanga Black Aces, SuperSport United, Ajax Cape Town, Chippa United and Bloemfontein Celtic.

Baxter also highlighted the rise of Lorenzo Gordinho, who struggled for game-time, under his tutelage at the Naturena-based outfit.

“It is a difficult job but when you look at some of the players that we tried to bring through… players like Lorenzo Gordinho and the like… you’ll have to agree that they are starting to bear fruit, even though it is taking longer than some people may have first thought.
