Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter reveals that he will keep an eye on George Lebese in training following the domestic violence accusations.

According to KickOff, Lebese was arrested last week for allegedly for malicious damage to property and domestic violence.

The midfielder returned to action following his successful bail application as Chiefs took on Township Rollers at FNB Stadium.

Chiefs came out eventual 2-1 winners courtesy of Matthew Rusike and Tefu Mashamaite.

However, Baxter did not applause the Lebese’s performance as he knows the player can produce much better displays in Amakhosi colours.

"At the moment the question is how did he play. I think George can play better than he did [on Saturday],” said Baxter.

"He didn't seem to have that spark and that's why I took him off because I thought maybe there was too much on his mind.

"We will consider [him] again and also take into account his training and quality during the week.”
