The news of Stuart Baxter parting ways with Kaizer Chiefs made waves on social media this week as we check out how fans reacted to the news.
What’s the story?
In what was one of the biggest stories in local football recently, Baxter head toward the exit doors at Naturena despite having a year left on his contract.
Upon returning to the club, supporters were optimistic, given his track record during his first stint with the Glamour Boys. However, with nine wins, eight losses and six draws in 23 games in the current campaign, the club and Baxter came to a mutual agreement to an early termination of his contract.
While the news surfaced before the club made it official, Chiefs subsequently took to their social media handles in saying, “After a series of meetings, Kaizer Chiefs and coach Stuart Baxter have come to a mutual agreement of an early termination of his contract with immediate effect.”
In detailing the rest of the season, the club went on to say, “Assistant coaches Arthur Zwane and Dillon Sheppard will take charge of the senior team for the remainder of the season, starting with the next match against Stellenbosch FC on Saturday, 23 April 2022.
We wish him well in the future.
The Club will make further announcements in due course.”
