Baxter Hails 'Marvellous' SuperSport Players

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 25, 2017 09:51 AM

SuperSport United head coach, Stuart Baxter, has praised his players for their 'fantastic' display against Orlando Pirates in the Nedbank Cup final.

Bradley Grobler bagged a brace, while Jeremy Brockie and Kingston Nkhatha also got on the score-sheet as SuperSport thumped the Buccaneers 4-1 to lift the cup for the second straight season.

“I thought The lads gave a fantastic performance,” Baxter told SuperSport after the game.

“The first half was what we expected it to be, it was a bit cut-and-thrust. Once we got ourselves in front we were comfortable with the game-plan.

“Dare I say, it could have run away to five or six , and then we give up a penalty at the finish. I will try not to let that spoil my evening.

“It was a very disciplined (performance) We knew the way that games are when you play Orlando Pirates. Individual skills that you have to negate, but what makes them strong also makes them weak at times. We needed to utilise that better and we changed a couple of things at halftime. 

"Once we got ourselves in front, I think it became more and more obvious they were going to struggle because the more they opened, the more we hurt them.

“I thought the players played marvelously, their tactical awareness, to run the game in a cup final like they did, it was so cold, so clinical. They just come and do a job and go home with trophy, and that is magnificent."

They wore green sleeping gowns, thinking they belonged to or already had their dirty fingers on the Nedbank. It is for Champions, not COWS! Matlaba, nxa!!!
