Read: Baxter leaves Chiefs in tatters
Amakhosi this week announced the departures of numerous
players, including Mphela, ‘keeper Itumeleng Khune and captain Tefu Mashamaite,
to name but a few.
Baxter will also bring an end to his three-year reign in
Soweto, and Mphela has lauded the tactician's achievements, having won two
Premiership titles, the MTN8 and Nedbank Cup during his time at Naturena.
"I had played for Stuart Baxter before but at national
level with Bafana Bafana. He is very different from the other coaches in terms
of coaching and conducting himself. He is a master tactician," Mphela told
"If you look at the players at Chiefs, they are just as
good as the players in the other teams, but it’s his tactics and techniques
which make Chiefs play differently from other teams.
"He has a different way of attending or approaching the
players which makes the players play for him and the team.”
