Stuart Baxter Reveals What The Next Kaizer Chiefs Head Coach Needs To Do
Bafana Bafana head coach, Stuart Baxter, has given his opinion on what Kaizer Chiefs need to take into consideration when appointing a new head coach.
For the full video clip, watch the Q&A with Baxter.
The Englishman has been heavily linked with a move to the Soweto giants, with Siya sources revealing that Baxter could possibly be returning to Naturena in the coming weeks.
However, speaking to Y2TV, Baxter revealed his general opinion on what questions need to be asked when Chiefs appoint a new coach, as well as what the coach needs to be able to deliver before taking on the responsibility of being at the helm of one of the biggest clubs in Mzansi.
“I think when clubs choose their coaches, many times they don’t think, is that a coach that can coach this club? they ask, is that a good coach?” Baxter revealed.
“I think also, the coaches don’t say, am I an appropriate coach for that club because they are so flattered, they just take the job.”
“And I think the coach needs to ask himself; can I deal with the pressure? Can I produce a brand of football that the people want to see and can I win things? Don’t just think can I pick up that cheque at the end of the month because that’s doomed to failure and the club needs to look at the same thing.
"Is this coach one that will handle the pressure, will handle the big players, will be able to produce younger players, will he be able to give us trophies, will he be able to give us consistency and is he a Sam Allardyce or is he a Pep Guardiola and which one of those do we want and everything in between and I think when you get a marriage that fits then keep hold of your coach and the coach, do your job and enjoy it,” he added.
