Baxter Has Finally Turned The Corner

Much was expected from Stuart Baxter when he took charge of SuperSport United in January.

His successful tenure at Kaizer Chiefs was used as a yardstick for his coaching and many hoped that Matsatsantsa A Pitori would be title contenders, since the British-born mentor's CV speaks volumes. But things started of roughly at Tshwane-based outfit for the ex Chiefs mentor.

SuperSport struggled to get maximum points, and Baxter's coaching qualities were questioned. Although, slowly, but surely, Baxter brought Matsatsantsa up the log. After he settled in the team, results started to follow. He finally got SSU in the Top half of the log, occupying 7th spot.

It would have been a real headache for the Tshwane side if they were to watch other sides compete in the MTN8 next season. I'm pretty sure Baxter is aiming to finish the season on a high, and the only way to do that is to finish in the Top 8.

Finally Baxter has found his groove and SSU are showing an understanding to his philosophy. Hopefully next season we'll see the Baxter we all knew from Chiefs, as it seems like the English man has finally turned the corner at Tshwane.
