Baxter Signs New Chiefs Deal

After months of negotiations Kaizer Chiefs have announced that their head coach, Stuart Baxter, has signed a new two-year contract.

Baxter’s deal at the club was due to expire in June, but it was always thought that he would be extending his time at Naturena.

The Siya crew spoke to the Englishman’s representative this morning who explained that the contract had been agreed in principal, and now it has finally been confirmed.

Speaking to the Amakhosi’s official website he said, “Football in the modern era is very often quick fixes and I think agreeing continuation with our cooperation means Chiefs would like to build something that will last a long time. I was told by my mentor, former Manchester City coach, Malcolm Allison, years ago, “Success is not about how many trophies or medals you can put in your cabinet. Success is about affecting people in a positive way and gaining people’s respect.” I heard that the late Nelson Mandela (1918 – 2013) also said it.

“When we won the double last season, I saw how many people we have affected. I would like to see us continuing to affect people positively and stimulate people to stretch themselves even further.”

Meanwhile, the club’s chairman, Kaizer Motaung, said, “It was imperative for us to renew and extend the contract because it is all about continuity and also being able to continue with our goals. Continuity is important in this kind of setup. We are delighted that we could extend the relationship. The contract is extended for another two years. It means we will be able to achieve much more and be able to reach our goals according to the plans that we have set for the club.

“In this kind of business, you need to be able to look at not today but how you progress into the future. It is about sustainability. It is a journey full of challenges and we have to be ready for the challenges ahead.”

Baxter led Chiefs to a league and cup double in his first season at the club, and will be hoping that he can win even more trophies between now and June 2016 when his new deal expires.
