 Stuart Baxter is prepared to vacate his position at the club.

When confronted with adversity Suart Baxter, the coach of Kaizer Chiefs, is willing to resign if Kaizer Motaung, the club’s chairman, instructs him to do so.

After his side’s 1-0 loss to SuperSport United in a DStv Premiership match at FNB Stadium on Saturday night, the 68-year-old coach acknowledged as much.

Thamsanqa Gabuza scored in the second half to give interim coach Andre Arendse a positive start as he takes over from Kaitano Tembo, who was fired on Tuesday.

For the first time in two years, Chiefs fans returned to FNB Stadium, but it was not a pleasant occasion for them as their team lost.

Following the game, Baxter said he had no message for Chiefs fans who yelled that he must leave after yet another loss in the team’s terrible season.

After losing by a goal at home to Cape Town City on Saturday evening at the FNB Stadium, the Chiefs suffered a major setback in their quest to stay in contention for the Premier Soccer League’s top spot.

The game was settled by Gabuza’s goal in the 65th minute, which could be the final straw in Baxter’s ongoing tenure as coach of the Amakhosi Giants. The management and Baxter are said to have reached an understanding to part ways.

Things are not looking good for Kaizer Chiefs coach, and he may be shown the door by the club at any point because a defeat is not what they want.

Kaizer Chiefs supporters are furious with the coach and refuse to have anything to do with him or see him at the club. They even threw objects at him after the game, which is not a good omen. This pinned him in a position where he could resign or be booted out of the club at any time. How far it will progress in the future will be determined by the passage of time.
