Could Wenger Prize Baxter Away From Chiefs?

Good morning Khosi fans! Yesterday it was revealed that Arsenal coach, Arsene Wenger, put in a good word for coach Stuart Baxter to several MLS teams… While this may be good for Baxter on a personal capacity, this could be detrimental to Chiefs.

After the turn of the New Year, the Siya crew announced that the long-time friends met up in England over the December holidays and spoke about different tactics and their respective clubs. 

Baxter has been a friend of Wenger since their days in Japan, and it is not a rare occurrence for them to meet up and talk about the beautiful game. However, it has since been revealed that Wenger has recommended the English coach’s services to several Major Soccer League clubs in the States.

The 61-year-old is known for moving around the football scene and he has never spent more than four seasons in one space… This then puts his time at Chiefs in doubt as his contract with Amakhosi comes to an end in June 2016. 

If he brings silverware to Naturena again this season, his CV will continue to grow more impressive and USA clubs could very well be vying for his services. After all, no team will be silly enough to ignore what Wenger says…

What are your thoughts on this?
