Can Baxter, Hunt & Pitso Afford To Fail?

Signing big name players comes with pressure and high expectations in the form of winning trophies and competing in all cups.

Teams like SuperSport United, Bidvest wits and Mamelodi Sundowns have bolstered well for their coaches, fans and management, who will not expect a trophyless season.

With Gavin Hunt having an almost new-look, strong team in Wits and taking into consideration that it’s his fourth season and he has never won a single trophy, despite the team got him every player he wanted, this could his last campaign in charge if he doesn’t produce silverware.

Pitso Mosimane is one coach that didn’t sign more players than he lost, but he really signed big name players. Although, a trophyless season will not go down well with fans regardless.

Stuart Baxter has assembled a mini Chiefs at SuperSport and, with what the team has already had before its signings, winning a Nedbank cup wouldn’t necessarily help, as Gordon Igesund won the MTN8 cup early, but still got fired.

Could these three coaches afford a trophyless season? Which one has the upper hand?
