Baxter Sets Record Straight About Chiefs Players

SuperSport United coach, Stuart Baxter, has been accused of trying to snatch some players away from his former club, Kaizer Chiefs, but the former Bafana Bafana mentor has refuted those claims.

After spending three successful seasons at Amakhosi, Baxter called time on his stint and left the country only to resurface in Turkey, where his stay was cut short before returning to South Africa to join Matsatsantsa a Pitori.

Speaking to Soccer Laduma, the 62-year-old mentor, said, “Look people will always read into situations what suits them at the time. I would always be interested in players who I knew and respected, no matter where they were playing but I find it difficult to believe that people think that I could or would try to entice players away from Chiefs.

“Could Schalke coach (Andre Breitenreiter) lure players away from Bayern (Munich) or the Everton coach (Roberto Martinez) steal players who are happy at Manchester United? Of course not! The first step would be if that player wanted to leave and the other clubs would then present their interest. That’s what being at a top club means. That doesn’t stop conspiracy theories because that’s sometimes more interesting than the truth,” concluded Baxter.

The former Amakhosi mentor also addressed these accusations in his interview in this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma. Make sure to get a copy to read the full interview.
