Baxter Praises Chiefs Star

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter was full of praise for his young star Njabulo Blom after the Soweto Derby.

The 21-year-old player was named Man of The Match after a good performance against Orlando Pirates.

Chiefs beat the Buccaneers 2-1 to secure an important three points and move above their rivals to position five in the DStv Premiership table.

“I think it’s massive, I think it’s a good point that you make, because it isn’t just about him having a good game, it’s about the inspiration that he gives to others that have been where he’s been playing,” Baxter said on Blom – a Chiefs youth product – being named Man of the Match in the derby.

“And he comes back after poor, the poorest first half. And he’s excellent in the second half.

“I think he’s one player with no disrespect to any of the other players in our team, he’s one player that’s got a big game in him, but he could step up, and he’s got the ingredients to step up and play on a very high level.

“I think that’s Blom. And, yeah, I think the national team, we’re going get a lot of good services from him as you move down the years.”
