Why is Baxter not playing David Zulu?

It is understood by Phakaaathi that the reason why David Zulu has seen limited game time at Kaizer Chiefs is because coach Stuart Baxter isn’t pleased it wasn’t him who brought Zulu to Naturena.

The former Chippa United striker was signed by the club’s management. The main bone of contention for Baxter is that management allowed Kingston Nkhatha to leave the club, much to his displeasure, with Zulu viewed as his replacement.

But Baxter has different ideas, preferring Mathew Rusike to lead the attack with Katlego Mphela and Siphelele Mthembu, the other man he has looked at.

Levy Mokgothu could be in the same boat as Zulu.
