Is Baxter The Right Man For The Job?


After Kazier Chiefs and Gavin Hunt parted ways, Arthur Zwane and Dillon Sheppard stepped up as caretakers. Now the race is on for Amakhosi to find a replacement coach and it has been revealed that the leader of the metaphorical race is Stuart Baxter. It is understood that the Englishman and Amakhosi have reached advanced talks, and he is expected to make his way to Mzansi, should the two parties agree terms. Stuart Baxter spent 3 fantastic years with Chiefs from 2013-2015, winning the PSL twice, claiming a Nedbank Cup title as well as an MTN8 title. It goes without saying that Baxter knows how to win trophies! “He understands South African Football and more importantly, the culture at Chiefs,” said one excited fan on this week’s episode of the Fan Reaction Show. However, a few concerned fans have said that the current Chiefs players won’t be able to adjust to Baxter’s style of play.

In the latest episode of the SL Podcast’s “Fan Reaction Show,” Amakhosi fans express joy and excitement as Stuart Baxter makes his way to Mzansi to further the discussions with Chiefs.
