Baxter Explains Set-Piece Theory At Chiefs

After winning another game due to a successful set piece, Kaizer Chiefs coach, Stuart Baxter, has explained that his tactics are based on a survey conducted in Germany.

It was Tefu Mashamaite’s goal that secured Chiefs’ MTN8 victory last weekend, with his header proving to be enough to see the Amakhosi go on to lift the trophy.

When asked how hard his side works on set pieces on the training field, Baxter says that it is definitely something that they take very seriously in order to reap the benefits.

Speaking to the media he said, “I saw a survey that was done in Germany, and they studied five leagues in the world and came to the conclusion that 74% of all the goals scored were either set plays or rapid transitions under six passes… So we’ve worked very hard on our rapid transitions and set pieces. And the opposite, we’ve looked at defending both of those things too. It’s a big part of football and we do work very hard on it.”
