Speaking to Soccer Laduma in edition 962, Baxter spoke on his time at the helm of the national team, as well as his three-year stint at the Glamour Boys. 

“In my first coaching stint with Bafana Bafana in the country, I was full of hope and expectations but I think it was too early in the development of South African football,” the Scotsman said.

The Matsatsantsa mentor admits that when he joined the Amakhosi, he felt he had a point to prove to the South African football fraternity.

“When I came to Chiefs, I wanted to put something right. I wanted to prove a point and I think people got to know me,” the 66-year-old said.

“Also my family enjoys living in the country. That’s why we chose to come back. SuperSport United’s offer was interesting and I could come back without having to prove anything.” Baxter told Soccer Laduma.
