Benni to chiefs Baxter to amazulu | VOTE: Do you think Baxter is the proper person to lead Amazulu?

VOTE: Do you think Stuart Baxter is the proper person to lead AmaZulu?

Make your opinion known.

After being added to the shortlist, vote on whether Stuart Baxter should be named the new AmaZulu coach.

Over the last few months, five coaches have been fired by their respective teams, but none has been more high-profile than Stuart Baxter's dismissal.

AmaZulu also fired Benni McCarthy, and it's now being claimed that the team is considering Baxter as a possible replacement.

Brandon Truter, who is now holding the role on an interim basis, was also discussed, as was Sundowns senior coach Steve Komphela and former SuperSport United head coach Kaitano Tembo.

Interestingly, while Truter acknowledged that Baxter was on the shortlist for the coaching job, he also stated that he had met with club president Sandile Zungu to discuss plans for the coming season. It'll be fascinating to see if he keeps the job permanently or if he stays connected in some other manner.

Truter told the Daily Sun, "I understand Stuart Baxter is also on the list (for the coaching position)."

"I'm always talking to the president about preseason and which [players] we should maintain and which players we should bring in for next season.

But in football, it's only done when you put it on paper. The president, on the other hand, is a man of his word and integrity. So we're going in that direction (in terms of preparation for next season), but I've been in football for far too long and am counting my chickens before they hatch.


Created with QuizMaker Truter has previously stated that he would like to work at AmaZulu on a permanent basis.

"Yes, I want to make it as tough for other coaches to apply as possible.

Of course, I have the interview privilege while at the club. I believe that counts in my favor, and if I get the job, I believe it will be simple for me since I am familiar with the structure and the culture of the club, and we will be able to get right into pre-season.
