At first, supporters took great offence; now it seems they can't help but laugh. There was a suspicion, when Stuart Baxter joined SuperSport United, that he would be out to poach players from Naturena, and he was warned off this by various prominent fans. Now, a couple months down the line, we hear that Reneilwe Letsholonyane will be moving to Pretoria, with Reyaad Pieterse possibly soon following him. And now a certain Keegan Ritchie could sweeten the deal… This is what the supporters think.
In stark contrast to the beginning of the year, when supporters were fearful of losing their stars, it now seems the only thing left for them to do is sit back and laugh.
"Eish, I have a list for him to take – Parker, Ndulula, Mthembu, Khune, and Abraw." – trecious
"Please sign Bobby." – Thabo Moyane
"Now we must wait for Baxter to sign Kaizer Chiefs supporters." – sthaam
"Baxter is now shopping with a trolley at Kaizer Chiefs." – vegetarian
"If he wants them all, it's okay, at least we will have a brand new Chiefs team." – xola-mxo-da-ex
What do you make of the news that Ritchie could end up going to SSU? Is it a smart move by Baxter? Is it smart of Chiefs to let him go?
