Baxter follows in the footsteps of his father, Stuart Baxter, who had a very successful three-year spell with Chiefs between 2012 and 2015, and he will be hoping to help them bring trophies back to the club after two and a half barren campaigns.

Speaking to the club’s official website after he was confirmed, Baxter said. “I am looking forward to the challenge… Chiefs have a very professional setup. It’s an inspiration to be here.

“Kaizer Chiefs’ facilities are on par with the top professional clubs in Europe. I have been at several European clubs, but they don’t all have training pitches of the quality that Chiefs have.”

And Baxter has ambitions at the club, stating that a trophyless campaign is not something that should be tolerated by Chiefs or their fanbase.

He said, “I want to win silverware as that’s what Kaizer Chiefs is all about. The club should at least win one trophy every season and I would like to contribute to accomplishing that.”

The 41-year-old has signed a deal with Chiefs until the end of the 2019/20 season and stated his excitement at working with the likes of Itumeleng Khune and Brilliant Khuzwayo.

Baxter recently left Danish club, Aarhus, and recently worked with clubs such as Genclerbirligi in Turkey and SuperSport United in the Absa Premiership.
