Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Stuart Baxter says he will never try to destabilise his former club Kaizer Chiefs by poaching their star players.
Baxter left Amakhosi for Sweden at the end of the 2014/15 season before returning to South Africa to take charge of Matsatsantsa in January this year, following the sacking of Gordon Igesund.
Since then, a number of Kaizer Chiefs players have been linked with a move way from Naturena to reunite with their former mentor in Pretoria, including midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane, whose contract with the Soweto-based club is set to expire at the end of the season.
"It would be pompous if I would sit and say I can bring Shabba (Siphiwe Tshabalala) and Bernard (Parker) because if a player is happy at Chiefs, I can't attract him. That is with any of Chiefs' players and not only Yeye," Baxter was quoted as saying by KickOff.
"If any of them is not happy and is going to leave Chiefs, I will be in a queue. That doesn't mean I am calling people to try bring them away from Chiefs. No, I am only realistic.
"Anybody thinking I am able to destabilise Chiefs is talking nonsense. But as soon as I believe one of the players is not happy, if it is documented that he is not happy, and by not happy I am guessing people who don’t play."
