Baxter Sends Bibo Warning

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter says Amakhosi youth product Sabelo ‘Bibo’ Radebe looks an interesting player, but also sent him a warning.

Radebe was voted into the Chiefs XI for the Carling Black Label Cup and featured the whole 90 minutes of the game.

The 21-year-old even took one of Amakhosi’s spot-kicks in the penalty shootout but missed his attempt. However, despite Radebe’s miss, Chiefs ended up winning 4-3.

Baxter was asked about the performance of the youngster, saying he looks like an interesting player with great skills and pace but still has a lot to learn.

“Bibo played well at times and yet he doesn’t get enough out of his obvious skill and his obvious pace,” the coach said after the game.

“He doesn’t get enough out of it. And that’s because he lapses into almost isolating himself.

“When he plays within the structure, I think he looked very interesting. It is very possible that he is going to get more game time, but that will always depend on the player.

“I just want to make him a better player and if he is a better player, I’m sure he’ll play more.”

Last season, Njabulo Blom, Nkosingiphile Ngcobo and Happy Mashiane were the three Chiefs products who received regular game time.
