Baxter: It wasn’t what I expected when I returned to Chiefs.
Stuart Baxter, who was on his second spell with Kaizer Chiefs, was formally dismissed by Amakhosi back in April.
Kaizer Chiefs were eliminated from the Nedbank Cup earlier this season, and they had underperformed in the DStv Premiership, leaving Baxter stuck in fifth place.
Baxter has now indicated in an exclusive interview with SABC Sport that he believes the squad might have recovered to finish as Premiership runners-up.
One of the most heartbreaking situations from the previous season included supporters yelling obscenities at Baxter and demanding his firing, right before he was formally sacked.
It was a dramatic contrast to his first stay with the squad, which won four awards and two league crowns between 2012 and 2015. In his first interview since being dismissed, Baxter has explained why he returned to the club and why things did not go as planned.
