KAIZER Chiefs midfielder Willard Katsande has praised to coach Stuart Baxter for improving his game.

The Zimbabwe international cleaned up at Chief’s end-of-the-season awards held in Midrand Wednesday night, winning the Online Player, Fan Player, Players’ Player and Player of the Season awards.

For the efforts, he walked away with R230,000 (US$22,300) in prize-money and a brand new Nissan 370Z.

“I just want to thank him [Baxter]; he helped me a lot,” Katsande said. “He used to sit with me after the game and show me where to improve and to read the game better.

“He helped me a lot since day one he arrived at Chiefs; even now before we closed we had a chat about the aspect of the game I need to improve.

“He is a father figure to me, he gave me the opportunity, so I need to repay him the confidence he showed in me by trying to perform well.

“He told me to improve about ball distribution and to improve about timing when we closing down the opposition.”

The 28-year-old was also pleased with the achievement and gave thanks to everyone who supported him during the season, especially when things were tough for him.

“It was my big night as an individual to win these awards and especially at a team like Chiefs, I will cherish this for the rest of my life,” he continued. 

“I'm humbled with the support I got from Chiefs fans; I just want to thank them for everything they have done for me from day one up until now.

“I'm looking forward to next season and next season I just want to be consistency.”
