Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter has opened up on whether striker Samir Nurkovic may be suffering from a lack of confidence after a barren goalscoring run.
Nurkovic is without a goal since Baxter started sitting on the bench upon his return for his second stint and has now stretched his barren scoring run to six games with his last strike having been against Wydad Casablanca in the CAF Champions League.
I think yes absolutely, Samir is not necessarily in a crisis, but he is a striker who lives and has lived for the whole of his career with goals as the gold standard," says Baxter.
Even if he is playing well for the team at the moment and even if he is getting to goalscoring positions, he is not tucking them away and that displeases him immensely.
It causes him frustration and therefore, yes, he is waiting for that goal to ease the pressure on himself, so I think that is a definite.Nurkovic is a number 9. Baxter needs to stop playing him as a winger. He doesn't posses enough skill and pace to beat defenders. What he possesses is aerial ability and an exceptional eye for goals.
This wild dog BaxterNurkovic is a striker not a winger, playing him out of position is not helping his case.how can he be confident when his coach does not trust him with his duties which for him is scoring goals.
Isn't about his confidence is because of you Mr Know It All, you've been using him to your madness position. Take Nurkovic to his original position and bring back Frosler and let Blom play middle with Nange and Alexander then stop your madness of trying to change everything. Let me give you the best line up that will help Baxter win matches.
His 1st season was the real deal,last season,3 goals,although the pirats one,gave us bragging rights, this season, it looks hard,especially with the position he's playing, he must be benched for kambole,akere we're trying or a false 9.
That guys excels as a target man. He's been playing out of position. He's not a winger. I don't know how long it's going to take him to realise that.A great striker but worst his time kicking,bullying,pushing and shoving his opponents.
