Kaizer Chiefs have secured their new coach with the return of Stuart Baxter to Naturena. Baxter and the Club have agreed to a two-year contract  plus a two-year option as the coach of Amakhosi’s first team.

The English coach was in charge of Chiefs from 2012 to 2015. During his first stint with the Club, he won several trophies with Amakhosi, including two league titles in 2012/13 and 2014/15, the Nedbank Cup in 2012/13 and MTN8 during the 2014/15 season.

“We believe we are on track with the changes we have made so far in the coaching and technical department after a challenging season domestically,” says Chairman Kaizer Motaung referring to the appointment of Baxter and Molefi Ntseki as Head of Technical and Youth Development Academy. “After extensive reviews and consultations, we decided to appoint Stuart because we believe he is one coach who understands our philosophy and culture. We know his work ethic and believe he will work with the team we have at the moment while trying to rebuild and ensure we have a formidable side for the new season.”

After leaving Chiefs in 2015, Baxter went on to coach a local team, Bafana Bafana and other teams outside the country. At Bafana, he worked with Molefi Ntseki and had a great working relationship.

Baxter will commence his duties as soon as the paper work has been finalized and he will work with Arthur Zwane and Dillon Sheppard as his assistants with support from Ntseki. The duo of Zwane and Sheppard will also continue coaching the reserve side.

Conclusion:

The football scene in South Africa is very competitive. Teams want coaches who can win laurels and they are willing to pay a high premium for their services. This has brought about a situation whereby it costs a lot of money to attract a SA coach away from the South African Premier Soccer League. In fact, it is easier for coaches from Europe to end up in South Africa. That’s all on the highest-paid Coaches in South Africa.
