Matsatsantsa announced the shock news that they had signed the Zimbabwean on a pre-contract earlier this month, with the two clubs then coming to an agreement so that the player could move immediately.

Now, having begun his training with Gordon Igesund’s side, the 29-year-old says that Baxter was crucial in helping him develop, and that he left Naturena with his blessing.

Speaking to the Siya crew, Nkhatha said, “We talked about everything that was happening, and with regards to my move to SuperSport. He said to me that life goes on, and that he understands I had to make a decision for my future. He said that if I felt there was a future here and not there, that even if it was him he was going to do the same.

“He just told me to go well and enjoy my football. My decision was based on what SuperSport were offering me rather than anything that was going on at Chiefs.

“Stuart improved me a lot, and taught me a lot of things for my game. I know that I’m not perfect, but he played a big role in helping me develop and I thank him, by the grace of God, for all that he did for me.”
