The former Bafana Bafana tactician has been strongly linked with a possible return to Amakhosi amid mixed reaction from PSL followers
Various reports suggest that Stuart Baxter is the frontrunner to take over the vacant Kaizer Chiefs coaching job following the sacking of Gavin Hunt on Friday.
To make the rumours interesting, Baxter is reported to be keen on roping in Molefi Ntseki as his assistant coach.
Fans have expressed different views after this news broke, but standing out is the question why Baxter should be allowed to work in South Africa after his offensive remarks during his last job in India, something which contributed to his sacking in February.
- Liverpool sign Konate after triggering release clause worth upwards of £35m
- Arsenal want quick resolution as interest mounts in Xhaka and Bellerin
- Oscar still hopes for Chelsea return as Brazilian star clings to Champions League dream
- Wahid Faghir: ‘The new Ibrahimovic’ ready to shine at the U21 Euros
This has been compared to Luc Eymael’s alleged racist remarks which cost him a job at Tanzanian giants Young Africans, and got him blacklisted from working in South Africa.
I just have a bad feeling about Stuart Baxter.
Him bringing Ntseki also doesn’t help his case.

I don’t want any Stuart Baxter at Naturena.his style of play wont work in psl anymore. Things have changed. Rather we give the job to Coach Arthur Zwane or give this man the job. One of the best coaches that I know. Give Micho the job please I beg. pic.twitter.com/bp6LePtJYS

Maybe Chiefs should reshuffle the whole technical team & appoint Junior Khanye as the head coach.
The man understands football… besides, I just want to see something…😁

We have been watching this club everyday for the last 6 years in the banter era. When Hunt spoke brightly about Parker and Katsande we warned him and told him we know better, if Baxter etc says similar we burn Naturena immediately, we won’t wait another season for what’s known.

I be honest u i dnt approve this the coach was never a problem. As long as we can’t fire bo Parker we going in reverse. Nd if we hire Baxter who can’t play young Players i will save my agony of following football for a while until we fix the problem nt the signs

I will tell you now that Stuart Baxter is not my first choice but he is the only coach who will come in, get us organized, play to a structure and hit the ground running. I will be 100% behind his appointment.
