What Lee Baxter’s Appointment Means For Baloyi

Brian Baloyi Will Work Alongside Lee Baxter At Kaizer Chiefs

By Soccer Laduma - Feb 13, 2018 01:31 PM
With Kaizer Chiefs announcing Lee Baxter as their new Head of Goalkeeping, questions have been asked about Brian Baloyi’s future at the club.
Baloyi took on the role of goalkeeper coach last year following the sudden passing of Alex Revoredo, and there had been talks of him possibly taking on the position on a permanent basis.
However, the decision to bring in Baxter to head up their goalkeeping department means that Baloyi will now be working alongside the club’s new appointment.
Chiefs seem to have suggested that Baloyi will play a bigger role in the development structures alongside Rory Minnaar, saying, “Baxter will not only work with the first team but also with the development structures. This means that he will work closely with the other two goalkeeper coaches at the club, Brian Baloyi and Rory Minnaar.” 
Meanwhile, Chiefs’ football manager, Bobby Motaung, believes that Baxter is part of a ‘bigger picture’ at Chiefs as they look to keep the club moving forward.
He told, “We welcome Lee into our Kaizer Chiefs Family. Coaching goalkeepers is a very specialised field. Lee is young, ambitious and he will bring a lot of international experience. Roping Lee in is part of the bigger picture of developing goalkeepers for the future. We are looking forward to this partnership which will take our youth development structures to greater heights.”
Baxter has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with Chiefs that will see him remain there until the end of the 2019/20 season.

Baloyi left Chiefs to join ndunu as a goalkeeper. He retired there and became a member of technical staff coaching goaliès. Chiefs recalled him from ndunu, why ndunu are making noise here ! Why did they let this guy go ? ndunu must shut up .

Bobby said that Lee is young, ambitious and he will bring a lot of international experience. which says that Baloyi is no ambitious enough or not at all and thus not have what it takes to take the club forward and lacks experience.Baloyi will understudy Baxter, THIS IS BULL

Baloyi doesn't have to complain. My opinion is that he must continue to serve the club where he is needed at the moment, that is, development structures. His time will come to coach the senior team goal keepers. There's time for everything. He must just be patient. There's nothing wrong if Baxter is junior to him. I think the decision was made based on Baxter's experience & qualifications. In the mean time he should work on getting coaching qualifications since he has the experience only.

The topic is very stupidity and its done without researching the facts. Baloyi is helping through experience while Baxter is a qualified individual.

Brian Baloyi have no papers he only coach from experience but Lee Baxter never been a goalkeeper but enrolled and graduated. Chiefs is not a Spaza shop but a professional entity therefore Lee Baxter vs Baloyi issue is clear. Baxter is a head of goalkeeping while Baloyi without papers will be an assistant.
