Baxter, Chiefs, and the Pre-Season

Stuart Baxter recently announced that he is taking SuperSport United on a special pre-season jaunt. This involves a trip to the world famous La Manga Club Resort in Spain, which has previously hosted FC Barcelona, among others. He has revealed that he tried to do the same with Kaizer Chiefs when he held the head coaching job there, but it did not work out. The supporters had some hilarious reactions to this...

It appears Baxter means business. This is clear for the supporters to see as going on such an expensive trip is no small deal. When Baxter stated that he'd unsuccessfully attempted to do the same pre-season trip with Amakhosi, the supporters were quick to pounce on the matter.

"SSU is paying for the trip. This shows Chiefs is stingy, like my granny!" – Lebstikano

"Pirates and Ertugral will be heading to the Botswana desert to prepare for the new season. Chiefs have the best training facilities, that’s why he never took us to Spain since Naturena looks exactly like Manchester Utd's training facilities." – msobho-kbs-uyakapka

"He wanted to take Chiefs there but they hired Putco buses to go to Mbombela." – Mshangazike II

"Swaziland is the longest distance we have travelled for pre-season and we always fly back with a cow in the plane." – Kgotso kgatla

"SSU + Baxter = trouble for everyone." – M.O.M

Do you think a pre-season in Europe is a good idea for a local team?
