Chiefs eye former SA coach
Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs are looking to firm up their deal for coach Stuart Baxter, according to a report on SoccerLaduma
The former Bafana Bafana coach has been identified as the favourite for
the hot seat at Naturena since Vladimir Vermezovic was relieved of his
position at the club and even though he has explained that he has had no
contact from the club, it is thought that they are finally preparing
something to table for the Scotsman.
A source explained, “Chiefs are
trying to firm up a deal at the minute but they’ve had to put the breaks
on things in order to sort out what’s going on at the minute, it’s a
SoccerLaduma contacted Baxter who said that his situation was still the same, at that he had heard nothing as of yet.
Baxter explained, “My situation
hasn’t changed, I’ll be looking at whatever is put on the table in front
of me between now and the European Championships.”
The Amakhosi management has
insisted that they will have found Vermezovic’s replacement by the end
of May so they have around a month to finalise things for whoever is
going to come in, however it is still thought that Baxter will be the
man to lead them into next season’s campaign.
