Hunt Responds To Baxter’s Tactical Role

Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt this week found himself having to defend how his technical team works after a mischievous enquiry on social media.

Goalkeeper coach Lee Baxter was caught on camera handing out instructions to substitutes in one of the Amakhosi matches instead of Arthur Zwane or Dillon Sheppard, who are both Hunt’s assistant coaches.

“They are all enthusiastic and we are all working together with no problems. I am in charge, tactics are set out before the game already, so there are no problems there,” Hunt told journalists in response to a question about Baxter’s actual role.

But, there really should be no concerns with a goalkeeper coach handing out instructions, especially one so involved as Baxter, the son of former Chiefs mentor, Stuart Baxter.

It’s also thought that Baxter is much more hands-on with set-plays and his responsibility extends beyond just being the goalkeeper coach.

Chiefs face Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates in the DStv Premiership on Saturday afternoon hoping to bounce back from the humiliating 5-0 aggregate defeat suffered in the MTN8 semifinals back in October in the early days of Hunt’s reign.   

“Obviously I am disappointed on what happened before, but it’s gone and we can’t do anything about it now. We just have to look forward and try and be positive, playing in a way I think can bring a positive result. That is all we are thinking about,” the coach said.
