KickOff, after Khuzwayo’s Man of the Match performance against Polokwane City
in their Absa Premiership goalless draw, Baxter reiterates that as long as
Khuzwayo is playing well the 24-year-old will remain in the starting XI.
“It is not a headache [that Khune is back],” said Baxter.
“As long as Brilliant plays [well], he keeps the shirt
simple as that.”
Khune has returned to training after removing his moon boot
as he found himself sidelined since September following an ankle injury.
Baxter unveils that
the Amakhosi players know that they must fight for their position in the
starting XI no matter what the circumstances.
“Our players know that the person in possession of the shirt
keeps it so unless he [Khuzwayo] plays poorly then Itu is gonna wait his turn.
“Itu knows that, he is a professional.”
