Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter has moved to thank the
club's supporters for sticking with the team during what was a difficult
campaign for the Soweto giants.
According to the football411 website, Amakhosi ended the 2013/14 season without a trophy after failing
in their PSL and Nedbank Cup title defences, with Mamelodi Sundowns
taking over as the new league kings, while Orlando Pirates and Bidvest
Wits will do battle in the Ke Yona final.
Chiefs also stuttered in Africa after succumbing to early exits
in the CAF Champions League and then CAF Confederations Cup, and Baxter
feels the club's fans have been put through a lot, and deserve praise
for sticking with the team.
"I would like to thank the supporters, the real supporter, the
one that has travelled this arduous journey of this season with us," the
Englishman told his club's official website.
Chiefs were able to sign off the season with a convincing 3-0 win
over AmaZulu on Saturday, giving the fans at least something to cheer
about, although Baxter was left ruing the fact the points proved
inconsequential in the title race.
He said: "I am pleased with the win this afternoon. The points we
collected here today would have won the league in any season but they
were not enough to defend our trophy this time."
