Stuart Baxter to Better Use Nurkovic Will it Work This Time Around?


The Amakhosi Team haven't been off to a Great Start this Season as they haven't won any Games as of yet and Fans are disappointing with this Start.Fans of the Club had high hopes that with the New Coach and New Signings Kaizer Chiefs would be a Force to be reckoned with.

Yet it seems as though that's not the Case Fans also blame Stuart Baxter's Misuse of Players and Giving them Plays they don't fully understand and that's been the Case with Chiefs' Star Player Samir Nurkovic.

How can you make the most of it? Stuart Baxter appears to have a problem with Samir Nurkovi, who appears to be a mismatch in the Kaizer Chiefs coach's system.In Chiefs' goalless draw with TS Galaxy forth their DStv Premiership season opening on Sunday, Nurkovic put in another subpar display.

The Serbian, who had also gone scoreless in the MTN8 opening against Mamelodi Sundowns two weeks ago, seemed frustrated against Galaxy and was taken off early in the second half at Mbombela Stadium.

Nurkovic is frustrated, according to Baxter, after a slump in form, but the Briton promises to be patient with him. “Look, he doesn't have a problem with his appetite. Baxter added, "He's desperate to do well for us."

“I think the injuries, the time away — plus the fact that he hasn't scored in a while — all of those things are irritating him, and he's finding it tough to give his best.

“Now we've changed his position a little to adjust his angle, so he's not as focused on goals. He's looking extremely excellent in training, and we've been tempted to keep him.”

Nurkovic was replaced because Baxter thought Keagan Dolly would provide the innovation they were lacking. “I just assumed Keagan's ability to pick locks could be little superior to Samir's strength. But when it comes to Samir, if there's a question, [we] keep going until he answers it,” Baxter added.

Every striker has off-days when they aren't performing at their best. That's the situation with Nurkovic, They encouraged Baxter to take care of everything else, including defending, competing, and linking up. Do their best till it cracks, and that they need to have as much tolerance as they can with Nurkovic.
