Baxter sheds light on Chiefs tongue-lashing

Premiership

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter has revealed details of the tongue lashing he gave his players in the aftermath of Wednesday's draw against AmaZulu.

Baxter was highly critical of Chiefs' performance in Wednesday's 1-1 draw against AmaZulu after his side squandered a first-half lead and ultimately struggled to hold on to a point against last season's DStv Premiership runners-up.

Following the encounter, which saw both teams reduced to ten men, the Amakhosi coach was late to the post-match press conference and put his delay down to him having a "long talk in the dressing room" with his players.

"I don't usually want to divulge what goes on in the dressing room but you're not fools," Baxter added when asked what he had said.

"To say that I wanted to reestablish the supporting walls of this building in terms of mentality towards the game and technique and being braver on and off the ball. 

"To re-establish that and reset what they know already about what we ask of each other. So, it was mainly that, with maybe an emphasis on a few words."

Wednesday's result saw Chiefs climb to fifth in the league standings although they could relinquish that position to high-flying Royal AM, who are a solitary point behind Baxter's side with a game in hand.
