The former Glamor Boys star is worried that some newcomers are struggling to express themselves under the current coach
The former wing of Kaizer Chiefs, Junior Khanye, is “concerned” about coach Stuart Baxter’s ability to “adapt” his style of play and make the new signings Keagan Dolly, Cole Alexander and Njabulo Ngcobo flourish.
The trio are part of nine players signed by Baxter before the 2021/22 Premier Soccer League season.
But Khanye is worried that Baxter’s game model may not be able to accommodate some of the new arrivals.
“Kaizer Chiefs have done a remarkable job in the transfer market by signing Dolly, Alexander and Njabulo Ngcobo,” Khanye wrote in his column. iDiski Times.
‘These are really good players who can play football and maybe help the club look for trophies.
“My concern is their coach, Stuart Baxter. Is he going to emphasize the transition breeder, or will he allow the players to express themselves?
“Is he flexible enough to adapt his playing style so that players can play? Only time will tell.
After being a sharp critic of the caliber of players challenging Amakhosi, the former youth international in South Africa is now happy with the players signed while expressing his admiration for Dolly.
“For the past five seasons I have said that Kaizer Chiefs need high quality players, and in this transfer window they have proven their intent and strengthened with the right kind of quality,” Khanye added.
‘Kaizer Chiefs signing Keagan Dolly’s was a big story last week and I have to say I did not expect it.
“Keagan is a star player, a very educated left foot and a player who has proven himself since his days in Ajax Cape Town and Mamelodi Sundowns.”
Baxter has hinted that Dolly may have to wait a little longer to make his Chiefs debut fitness issues.
The coach says they are working on the former Sundowns star to cut some of his weight off, and Khanye advises the player to be at his best again as soon as he overcomes the issues.
“There are concerns about his lack of fitness and playing time, I believe it can be resolved within a month, and he will be back in full fitness,” Khanye said.
‘He’s still 28 years old, at a very good age where he can give Chiefs many seasons of good performances. Dolly is a good sign for Kaizer Chiefs, and makes no mistake, and I look forward to seeing him in Chiefs’ colors.
