Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp explains
just what it is that Kearyn Baccus brings to the Soweto giants ahead of the
Telkom Knockout semi-final against Maritzburg United at Mbombela Stadium on
Baccus has been out with injury since the Telkom Knockout
first-round victory over Cape Town City after making an impressive start to the
season, having joined from Melbourne City in the previous transfer window.
But the 28-year-old Durban-born midfielder is set to return
for the weekend's last-four showdown with the Team of Choice, while Amakhosi
are also boosted by the return of Itumeleng Khune.
And Middendorp was especially pleased to welcome back
Baccus, whom he says is crucial for the Glamour Boys as he seldom gives away possession.
"Yeah, it's definitely something as we know his last
game was a few weeks ago. He trained now fully in the international break, and
particularly the entire week now," Middendorp told KickOff.
"Very mobile and flexible and he's definitely a player
who gives us an additional dimension with this really responsible ball
possession rate - it's good; it's good. I'm very happy to have him back."
Kick-off is at 15:00.
