Chiefs Struggle With Baxter, Assessing Other Options

Kaizer Chiefs Assessing Coaching Options

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 11, 2018 10:05 AM

Kaizer Chiefs’ pursuit of Stuart Baxter has become a challenge, with sources revealing that the club is still assessing other options.

As reported in the past weeks by the Siya crew, Baxter is believed to be at the top of the list of candidates for the vacant Amakhosi head coach role. 

However, with the coach still contracted to the South African Football Association, it is expected to be a long process before SAFA could agree to part ways with the Englishman.

Bafana Bafana will get underway with the 2019 Africa Cup Of Nations qualifiers early in September this year and indications are that SAFA will want to avoid having to go through the process of finding a new head coach so soon before one of the most crucial football tournaments.

Siya sources have indicated that Chiefs are keen on Baxter, although it is a big challenge to get the Englishman out of his contract with SAFA, adding that the Amakhosi management are still assessing other options, should they be unable to secure their man.

Chiefs have already begun their pre-season training, having also made four new signings ahead of the new 2018/19 season.

As things stand, it is yet to be known whether Chiefs will be successful in bringing Baxter back to Naturena, or if they will be forced to look elsewhere.

You will never know what you have until you've lost it. Baxter was at chiefs and we never appreciated him now we want him back. This says a lot about our management....

If this story is true then I believe the chiefs management are more confused than I thought. The guy wouldn't have left in the 1st place after guiding the team to 4 cups in 3 seasons with 2 of those being the league. Had he been given the personnel he had requested in the 1st place

Komphela's failure taught us to be patient therefore we will be patient until we get the right man for the job even if it means we must wait until Jesus comes so be it

Long as Prisoners are losing they're star players left right and center I'm happy to wait for Sir Baxter's return......even if it means we must give Mabedi and Khuse the hot seat in the meantime then be it
