Former Chiefs Star Pleads With Hierarchy

Kaizer Chiefs' decision to part ways with coach Stuart Baxter has been welcomed by many with one former player offering advice to the club hierarchy.

Amakhosi has been struggling with inconsistent results this season, resulting in the club relieving Baxter of his duties.  

One of the vocal former Chiefs midfielders Ntokozo Sikhakhane has welcomed the decision to release Baxter and called for respect to supporters, who were not happy with the appointment of the coach. 

"As I said before, Stuart Baxter is a very good coach and I can't take away the success he had with Kaizer Chiefs in his first stint, but this time around it was high time to release him," Sikhakhane told the Siya crew. 

"I'm happy they've released him and you can see supporters are over the moon, because they've been asking for his sacking. Supporters know football and some played the game, it is just that they didn't reach our level, so they must be respected."

Amakhosi have a reputation of giving coaches time to do their job and Sikhakhane has requested that the management to do the same with Arthur Zwane and Dillon Sheppard, to allow them to rebuild the club.

"My plea to the managment is if they want to rebuild this club to reclaim their status in South African football, they should give Arthur Zwane enough time to stand on his own, and lead this club because he has resources from development. 

"The current top development players at Chiefs are the result of his hard work. Now he must be trusted with this job like its been happening with other coaches. Believe in our own, let him have his own pre-season with the team. Let's give (it to) Arthur Zwane and Dillon Sheppard, (the club) can even add another man to assist them if they want to."
