Kaizer Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter has to start delivering, if he wants to keep his job as Amakhosi coach. Chiefs have not won a trophy in six years. The trophy drought is set to continue for a seventh year after the Soweto glamour club was knocked out of the Nedbank Cup in the first round for a second successive season. Baxter was the last coach to lift a trophy with Chiefs back in 2015.
Amakhosi are currently fifth on the DSTV Premiership log with 29 points and it looks unlikely that they’ll be able to topple current log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns who have massive 19 point lead. Chiefs travel to Polokwane this weekend to face the struggling Baroka FC on Saturday evening.
“Everybody is employed to do their job, everyone is employed to do their best, we are here and all we can focus on is our next game. We understand how we play football, and succeeding how we play football is very key to make us who we are, so listening to our supporters when it comes to the questions, the mood, and what they feel because this club is their club and nobody knows this club better than them. So to answer that question we have to come together and make sure that we can do our best for them and by us this starts by our game against Baroka,” says Kaizer Motaung Junior, Kaizer Chiefs sporting director.
