Baxter has become the latest coach to hit out at Hugo Broos this time about Njabulo Ngcobo

According to Soccerladuma, Kaizer Chiefs mentor Stuart Baxter has joined a developing rundown of DStv Premiership guides hitting out at their Bafana partner Hugo Broos

According to Soccerladuma, It was Rulani Mokwena who terminated the principal salvo by regretting helpless correspondence from the public group mentor in regards to Mamelodi Sundowns players, then, at that point, his contrary number at Orlando Pirates in Mandla Ncikazi likewise impacted the Belgian. 

This week it was Baxter… 

According to, His problem was over comments Broos made that Njabulo Ngcobo, who Baxter has been utilizing generally as a focal midfielder, is a protector! 

According to, What's odd, nonetheless, is that Broos himself has been sending the player in a comparable position, however he contended, subsequent to reporting his 24-man crew for the World Cup qualifiers against Zimbabwe and Ghana, that he'd picked Ngcobo as a centre back.

“I think it’s unfortunate that we get a discussion about it here (with the press) because Hugo could come to the Village and make a club visit. Then we can discuss what we think about players because we work on a different way than the national coach – I’ve been the national coach, so I know,” Baxter told Soccerladuma.

“We see the players everyday compared to him, we see the balance within our squad and we see where he (Ngcobo) can do the job. Now, I would willingly have a discussion about that with the national coach, if he wanted to come to the Village. But I’ve never seen him, so I have to have the conversation with you. I’ve got my sports science department talking about what they do on national team camp, but I don’t discuss that with the media.”- he continued to Soccerladuma.

According to Soccerladuma, A previous Bafana mentor more than two spells, Baxter demanded that he would cheerfully give Broos intel on a couple of different players he would be enthusiastic about choosing soon from the Amakhosi camp – provided that they plunked down together.

“I’ve got my opinions about what Bafana do, but I’ve got respect for a colleague. I don’t have the conversation with you guys. Hugo is welcome at the Village and we can discuss Ngcobo, (Njabulo) Blom, Kegan (Dolly) and Bruce Bvuma – we can discuss all of our candidates for Bafana. I will give my honest opinion. But it’s him (Broos) who is the man that picks the team, so if he thinks he is a defender, he picks him as a defender,” Baxter concluded to Soccerladuma.

According to Soccerladuma, Kaizer Chiefs will take on Orlando Pirates tomorrow on the highly anticipated Soweto Derby. Kaizer Chiefs fans will surely be looking forward to seeing how Njabulo Ngcobo will perform in that Midfielder role against the likes of Goodman Mosele. According to Soccerladuma not many kaizer Chiefs agrees with their head coach in Stuart Baxter choice to play Njabulo Ngcobo as a defensive Midfielder.
