Baxter to keep an eye on Lebese
Kaizer Chiefs coach, Stuart Baxter, has said that he will be “keeping an eye on” midfielder, George Lebese’s mental fitness during training, following accusations of abuse.
Lebese was arrested last week on charges of malicious damage and domestic violence after allegedly assaulting his girlfriend and damaging her car.
He was released on R1000 bail last week and returned to the team for their Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League match against Botswana side, Township Rollers, at the FNB Stadium on Saturday evening.
Chiefs won the match 2-1 thanks to midfielder, Matthew Rusike and defender, Tefu Mashamaite.
Baxter said that Lebese did not do his best during the game, which could be due to last week’s events.
"At the moment the question is how did he play. I think George can play better than he did [on Saturday],” said Baxter.
"He didn't seem to have that spark and that's why I took him off because I thought maybe there was too much on his mind. We will consider [him] again and also take into account his training and quality during the week.”
