Baxter On The Mend After Suspected Bite

SuperSport United’s head coach, Stuart Baxter, is recovering in hospital after a medical procedure to treat what is suspected to be a bite.
 
 
Baxter’s club confirmed on Monday that the Englishman would miss the encounters with Bidvest Wits tonight and this weekend’s clash with Kaizer Chiefs after being admitted for ‘emergency medical treatment’, however didn’t reveal the actual issue.
 
Reports suggest that the 63-year-old has not been feeling well since returning from Matsatsantsa’s CAF Confederation Cup game in Liberia, however he originally didn’t think anything of it.
 
Then, after swelling grew and the injury became septic, Baxter was informed that his ailment would need an acute operation to sort out, and blood tests have suggested that it was caused by a bite of some kind.
 
According to Siya sources, the operation went well and as planned, with the coach now waiting to hear from doctors with regards to when he will be able to return to work.
 
It is thought that he will be healthy enough to retake his place on the SuperSport when they take on Bloemfontein Celtic in the first game of May, with Kaitano Tembo taking his spot in the meantime.
