Baxter Out Of Hospital, Unlikely To Return v Chiefs

Stuart Baxter is out of hospital and on the mend after undergoing surgery earlier this week, although it is highly unlikely that he will return for the clash against Kaizer Chiefs.
Baxter oversaw Matsatsantsa’s victory over the Amakhosi in the Nedbank Cup last weekend, however, his happiness was short-lived as he was taken to hospital for what his club described as an ‘emergency medical procedure’.
His operation meant that he left his side in the hands of Kaitano Tembo as they beat Bidvest Wits at Bidvest Stadium on Tuesday, with Thuso Phala giving them a 1-0 victory that gave them some slight hope of pushing for the Absa Premiership title. 
It has been confirmed that the Englishman is out of hospital, with Tembo telling the media earlier this week, “All I know is that he had surgery and it was a success, and he is now recovering at home. That is all I can say for now.”
SuperSport face the Glamour Boys at Mbombela Stadium on Saturday evening, and while Baxter is expected to miss that game, he could well return for the encounter with Bloemfontein Celtic next week.
Baxter’s ailment has added further delays to the ongoing talks with SAFA about the vacant Bafana Bafana post and as reported in the latest issue of Soccer Laduma, issues surrounding SuperSport’s compensation continue to be an issue.
If the compensation issue is not sorted out in the near future, then the two parties may ultimately decide to cut off talks completely. As revealed by the Siya crew, SuperSport want around R2 million from SAFA in return for the departure of their head coach and the terms of how the R2 million will be paid are yet to be agreed upon.
