Opinion - Stuart Baxter is slowly following in the footsteps of Gavin Hunt at Kaizer Chiefs?

There is an old saying in life as well as in football that goes out with the old and in with the new in relation to the sacking of a manager or a coach or the selling of a player

And in relation to Kaizer Chiefs when they got rid of Gavin Hunt and brought in Stuart Baxter there was an expectation that the Englishman would bring in something totally new and different than his predecessor

Because during his tenure as Kaizer Chiefs boss Gavin Hunt was heavily criticized for his tactics as well as his style of play at the club which technically in a way led to Kaizer Chiefs finishing in probably their lowest ever position for quite a while

The Glamour Boys last season finished in a very underwhelming and undermining 8th place in the DSTV Premiership although the club did manage to reach the CAF Champions League final

Since then Stuart Baxter has stepped in with a view and an intention to flip the script and hopefully repeat his previous exploits with the club that saw him win two league titles in his first spell in charge

But so far for Stuart Baxter since he has arrived at Kaizer Chiefs he has been mirroring the same kind of inconsistency that Gavin Hunt had been displaying during his tenure at the club

The Glamour Boys have been on and off this season as soon as they take two steps forward they take another three steps backwards

The Club managed to pick up two wins from two against Chippa United, SuperSport United in which Amakhosi were devastatingly clinical scoring six goals in two games

Lately though Kaizer Chiefs were back to where they don't belong as they were surprised at home by Stellenbosch who beat the Glamour Boys 1-0 at Soccer City stadium thanks to a stunner by Ashley Du Preez

The defeat took Stellenbosch second behind Mamelodi Sundowns in the table and took Kaizer Chiefs further down the table to seventh place behind fierce rivals Orlando Pirates

And although it is still relatively early days with only nine games played already in the DSTV Premiership Kaizer Chiefs & Stuart Baxter are slowly but surely heading in the same direction they were heading while Gavin Hunt was still in charge
