Baxter Jets Out, Talks Ongoing

Stuart Baxter jetted out of South Africa last night, and it’s understood part of his itinerary includes talks with potential suitors abroad.

The former Bafana Bafana, SuperSport United and Kaizer Chiefs mentor spent more than two months reconnecting with his family in Johannesburg and Cape Town after he was relieved of his duties by Odisha FC in India earlier this year.

His agent Steve Kapelushnick confirmed to the Siya crew in April that Baxter received two offers in Europe, while two more clubs in the Premier Soccer League had made contact to enquire about the coach’s availability.

It’s now come to the Siya crew’s attention that the Englishman returned to Sweden on Wednesday and will hold discussions with the interested parties overseas, though he has not completely closed the door on a PSL return.

Prior to his second stint with Bafana in 2017, the coach had great success at Naturena – winning a total of four trophies, including two league titles, in his three seasons there.

Baxter also won the Nedbank Cup twice with SuperSport before the national team came calling with the mandate to get Bafana to the 2018 World Cup as well as the Africa Cup of Nations a year later. He only qualified for the Afcon.

Recently, his name keeps coming up with Chiefs contemplating a coaching change, having seen Gavin Hunt’s first year at the club go pear-shaped.

But Baxter’s trip to Europe this week could put an end to speculation if talks with his suitors there yield a positive outcome.
