Baxter delighted with result
Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter has hailed his side's "fantastic result" following their 6-0 defeat of AmaZulu at the weekend.
The Glamour Boys began the new season with a flawless display
against Usuthu, with Bernard Parker's four-goal haul stealing the show,
while Kingston Nkhatha and Siyabonga Nkosi completed the rout.
The result came on the back of Chiefs' heavy 4-1 defeat to
Mamelodi Sundowns in the MTN8 quarter-finals last weekend, but the
turn-around in performance has left Baxter with little complaint.
"There's two different aspects about Saturday night; you have the
performance and you have the result," he said after the game. "The
result I cannot complain about at all.
"It's a fantastic result away from home against a well-drilled
team that knows how to keep the ball very well. Looking at the
performance, the players were very nervous early on, I don't know why.
"But thereafter we unbalanced a very good team. After the first
goal, I can't complain about the performance at all, I thought we were
disciplined and the attacking play was very good."
Speaking of Parker's sensational performance, Baxter added: "I
think he's got all of the qualities that a modern shadow striker should
"I'm very happy with the way he's playing, he approaches his job
every day in a very professional way and would imagine that (Bafana
Bafana coach) Gordon (Igesund) is very pleased to see what Bernard's
doing at the moment."
