Linda Buthelezi: 'Baxter can't coach'


Former Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates hardman Linda Buthelezi feels Chiefs were fortunate to clinch victory against Orlando Pirates in the Soweto derby on Sunday.

The Glamour Boys beat the Buccaneers by 2-1 at FNB Stadium to claim bragging rights in a dramatic win.

"What did Chiefs do exactly?" Buthelezi questions to

"It was Hlatshwayo's mistake that cost all this. Hlatshwayo's costly mistake leading to the goal is what destroyed the Pirates team's morale.

“It wasn't easy for Pirates to bounce back because they don't know how to do that. Mandla Ncikazi doesn't know how to pull off a comeback.

“He is the type of coach that tells players to go and enjoy themselves and play their normal football. He needs a senior coach alongside him. Hlatshwayo's 'goal' demoralised the whole team, even Ncikazi.

"Captains and leaders are born, you are not just appointed as a leader.

"Even the likes of Joseph in the Bible were chosen by God. As someone who has been in the game for such a long time, how can you play a back-pass, a horizontal ball?"

"Baxter can't coach, that's what I have found out about him, why is he still playing Billiat?

"Also that defender of ours, Daniel Cardoso, that guy is not a player, even though the Portuguese are good at football, make no mistake.

"At Chiefs we lack creativity. Where is our current Ace Khuse? I'm not jealous of Baxter, but this was a lucky win."
