Kaizer Chiefs confirmed the reappointment of Stuart Baxter as their head coach yesterday. His return to the club was met with both optimism and pessimism.
Since Baxter left Amakhosi in 2015, they have not won a single trophy. In fact, it’s been somewhat of a downhill spiral.
The departure of players like George Lebese, George Maluleka, Siphiwe Tshabalala, Reneilwe Letsholonyane, has seen the club lose its ethos. The dwindle of key players like Itumeleng Khune and Bernard Parker has also contributed.
Baxter will be tasked with refreshing and reassembling a new functioning squad for future seasons.
Baxter is one of the more successful coaches in the history of Kaizer Chiefs in the PSL era. Despite this, his return has been met with both negativity and positivity.
