Baxter: Ex-Chiefs players have nothing to prove

Johannesburg - SuperSport United coach Stuart Baxter says the large number of former Chiefs players in his squad will not affect the upcoming clashes with Amakhosi.

SuperSport meet Chiefs in a Nedbank Cup quarter-final clash at the FNB Stadium this Saturday and then clash again in a league match in Pretoria the following Saturday.

Baxter is himself a former Amakhosi head coach - he won the league twice with the Glamour Boys.

And the likes of Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Morgan Gould, Reyaad Pieterse, Mandla Masango, Thuso Phala, Kingston Nkhatha, Onismor Bhasera and Keagan Ritchie played for Chiefs earlier in their careers.

But Baxter does not feel this will be a factor in the upcoming 'double-header' with the Soweto giants.

"The fact that we got some former Chiefs players playing for SuperSport for me is totally irrelevant. They are not playing for Chiefs and that's part of the game," said Baxter.

"They are professionals. When we play Chiefs or Orlando Pirates, they should have equally as much to prove. The truth is they have nothing to prove. I don't think most of them left under a cloud."
