Stuart Baxter says playing Khama Billiat in the final was a "huge gamble" for Kaizer Chiefs
Looking at other sports reports, Briefly News ran an article that following Kaizer Chiefs' 3-0 defeat to Al Ahly in the CAF Champions League final on Saturday, head coach Stuart Baxter stated that his choice to bring Khama Billiat in was a gamble.
Baxter reacted to Happy Mashiane's red card on the stroke of half-time at the Mohamed V Stadium by taking Billiat off the bench at the start of the second half.
Pitso Mosimane's team, on the other hand, took advantage of the additional man and switched up their playing flair with incredible speed.
