Dolly’s weight loss, a blessing in disguise for Chiefs.

Amakhosi head coach Stuart Baxter has opened up about the main secret behind the club’s attacker Keagan Dolly’s fast paced weight loss as he admits their star player arrived in South Africa a bit overweight.

Keagan Dolly starred for Kaizer Chiefs by scoring a brace in a morale-boosting 4-0 win over Chippa United in a DStv Premiership clash at FNB Stadium on Saturday. Keagan Dolly's brace took his tally to a total of 3 goals in Kaizer Chiefs colours.

After the game, Stuart Baxter revealed how Keagan Dolly has shed off his unwanted extra weight to find his best form as he has started to deliver the desired goods at Naturena.

"He has worked very very hard, I can't take any responsibility, I think from the coach comes just inspiration, from the player, comes self motivation."

"Because he had not play for so long, and I am sure you would understand that when you are out of the team and not part of the setup and you are not playing, you lose your motivation and maybe a little bit of that drive that keeps you in top shape as a player "

"By the time he came to us, yes he was a few kilos overweight and he really needed to work on that."

"I didn't want to shove him in because the touch doesn't go, the vision doesn't go, the left foot doesn’t go, so you are tempted to just throw him in there."

"We managed him pretty closely to where he is now today, and he is now in good shape and enjoying his football."

The coach and the man himself hope this is a turnaround of things as Keagan Dolly has vowed to continue to work hard and deliver more goals for the club and help them climb up the log table.
