Stuart Baxter has explained Kaizer Chiefs' decision to allow one of the players to go home as a result of an emergency.

The club confirmed over the weekend that striker Samir Nurkovic has been given permission to travel to his native Serbia to be with his “seriously ill” father and there is yet no timeline as to when the player will return.

Baxter, shortly after Amakhosi beat SuperSport United 2-1 in their DStv Premiership clash on Sunday to move up to fifth place after seven matches, confirmed to the media that Nurkovic will also continue his rehabilitation there.

Nurkovic had surgery on his troublesome knee last month and is only expected to return to action sometime in January, with the coach arguing it made sense to allow him to go be with his father while also working on his own recovery.

“He has been allowed to go home to be with his seriously ill father,” said Baxter told journalists after the game on Sunday.

“And he is getting his rehab there as we are in contact with the doctors. We did the same with Leonardo Castro (when he went to Colombia while injured), that went very well. So, we are allowing that (for Nurkovic) and I think it’s correct and it’s right to do that. When he gets back he’s going to have to fight for his place.”
