Kaizer Chiefs will be hoping that the Scotsman will lead them back to their glory days. Amakhosi finished 8th in the DSTV Premiership this season.
Baxter is hoping to take them as close as possible to the league title. They will have to compete with the likes of Mamelodi Sundowns in their quest.
“I am feeling very, very comfortable with the decision to come back here,” Baxter said to media.
“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,” Baxter said.
“I have been good since leaving Chiefs. I have been all over the world.
“I have been SuperSport coach and Bafana Bafana coach in the interim, so people have known where I was at. Immediately before coming back here, I was in India and then Sweden.
“It will be different this time. The game has changed.
“I remember when I came the last time and spoke about transitions people laughed and now it’s an integral part of everybody’s game. I have to find out what is new and what I can use that is going to bring us an advantage.
“It will be interesting. It will be a challenge, an interesting challenge,” he stresses.
When Baxter left South Africa, Mamelodi Sundowns were beginning their dominance on South African football. He has the unenviable job of dethroning the reigning champions.
