Will Baxter’s Rotation Policy Be Chiefs' Downfall?

Last season in the Absa Premiership, Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter was lauded for his ability to successfully rotate his squad, allowing him to always have fresh legs at his disposal. However, the squad ran out of steam towards the end of the campaign, losing out on the Absa Premiership title in the process.

This season, Baxter and co may have not made many additions to the squad, and with Chiefs being limited in terms of quality in depth, will Baxter experience some glitches as he rotates the squad in more than one competition?

In the Absa Premiership, Amakhosi no doubt have the quality to go all the way. Names like Itumeleng Khune, Siphiwe Tshabalala and Reneilwe Letsholonyane are seasoned campaigners who know what it takes to win the league. Amongst other quality players, Chiefs without a doubt have a team to compete domestically.

Can the same be said about continental competition though? This is where the rotation policy would come into effect. It could be a case of Baxter having to choose which competition he wants to win, simply because the squad is too thin to compete in both.

Will Baxter once again struggle in this regard?
