Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed that newly appointed coach Stuart Baxter won’t be in charge of the CAF match against Wydad Athletic Club.
Having appointed Baxter as the team’s head coach last week for his second spell with the club, Amakhosi have confirmed that assistant coaches Arthur Zwane and Dillon Sheppard will continue to sit on the bench while the club works on obtaining Baxter’s work permit.
“Kaizer Chiefs will travel to Morocco on Wednesday to face Wydad Athletic Club in the CAF Champions League first leg semifinal clash at the Stade Mohammed V in Casablanca.
“Just as in the last two DStv Premiership games of the season, coaches Arthur Zwane and Dillon Sheppard will continue to sit on the bench while newly appointed coach Stuart Baxter and the Club’s administration work on obtaining his work permit,” Chiefs confirmed in a statement.
“Coach Baxter will however travel with the team to the North African country as the team gets ready for the all-important semifinal game against two-time CAF Champions League winners. The game will take place on Saturday, 19 June with kick-off scheduled for 20:00 in Morocco (21:00 South African Time),” stated the club.
