AFCON

The league has improved and even the bottom teams are no pushovers - Baxter.


New Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter expects things to be tougher in the South African league this time around.


Baxter was recently confirmed as the new Chiefs coach and will take over from Gavin Hunt, who only lasted 9 months at the helm at Amakhosi.


Baxter was the last coach to win the league with the Naturena based side years ago when he was last in charge of the team.


A lot has changed since his departure, as Mamelodi Sundowns has easily dominated the PSL.


The Brazilians have won the league 4 times in a row, while the Glamour Boys has not lifted any silverware since Baxter’s departure.


After leaving Chiefs, Baxter went on to coach at Supersport United and was also the man who took Bafana Bafana to the 2019 AFCON.


Speaking to his club’s website, Baxter said the South African league is a lot tougher now, unlike when he was last in charge of Amakhosi.


“I think this time there will be a lot of expectations. I will have to manage that. This time, it’s a tougher league. The league has improved and even the bottom teams are no pushovers. Now, they are all tight games,” says Baxter” 


Amakhosi supporters will hope the experienced mentor can lead the side back to their glory days.
