Pieterse, Ritchie, Gould, Yeye and now Mashamaite have joined SuperSport United. These are all the players that played under ex-Chiefs coach, Stuart Baxter at Chiefs. He is now the head coach of SuperSport United, and all these players have moved to the capital to join Matsatsantsa a Pitori.
One wonders if Baxter is thinking of recreating the once dominant Chiefs team at his current club and if this move will be fruitful.
It might just be, and not only that but chances are that Baxter's puzzle is yet to be complete. Siboniso Gaxa possibly being available on a free transfer and Mandla Masango also apparently unhappy at his team in Denmark, it would be interesting to see if Baxter shows interest, especially considering how big a role Gaxa played at Chiefs under Baxter during their successful season.
No matter how you look at it or how much Stuart Baxter is denying it, it surely does seem like he could be creating another Chiefs team of his own in Pretoria.
Do you think this plan will work?
