Kaizer Chiefs today announced the appointment of Stuart Baxter as their first team coach. This follows the appointment of Molefi Ntseki as their Head of Technical and Youth Academy a fortnight ago.
The two worked well together at Bafana Bafana. Stuart Baxter was head coach of the South African national team, with Molefi Ntseki as his assistant.
The two have the platform to work together once again at Kaizer Chiefs, at club level.
““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,” Kaizer Motaung told the club’s media.
“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.
“It has been six years since Stuart left Chiefs after winning the league trophy in 2015, but he departed on good terms and remains a well-liked figure by many supporters, colleagues and some of the players he coached at the time. We believe he will be able to work within our current set up and will use the time to understand some of the players he’s not familiar with.
“We need the coach to have enough time and prepare adequately for the new season,” confirms Chairman Motaung.
“We did not have a decent pre-season due to Covid-19 and other factors last season, so we hope to use the CAF Champions League journey as a part of our preparation while trying to do well in the competition. It won’t be easy, but we believe the team and the technical staff around him will help with the transition.” He concluded.
