Cape Town – Former Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter insists that he is back in South Africa not to take over any PSL club.

According to Soccer Laduma, the Englishman has endured quite an unrealistic few months as far as coaching is concerned.

The 62-year-old and Chiefs reached an agreement back in June to terminate his contract following a mutual agreement with the club.

Less than a week later, Baxter accepts a job in Turkey to coach Super Liga 1 club Genclerbirligi.

However, club owners sacked the former Bafana Bafana coach with having only coached the side in two official matches.

Now the coach wants to settle some private business out in the and perhaps test the waters of of possible offers.

“I’m here to sort out some private business and tie up some loose ends, visit friends and, of course, a lot of those friends are in football,” said Baxter.

“I want to put my finger in the water and test the temperature, but that will not include trying to stitch up one of my coaching colleagues, because I know how difficult the job is.”
