Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter unloads the details as to how he got sacked from Turkish club, Genclerbirligi SK.
Sport24 reported that unconfirmed reports had surfaced declaring that the 62-year-old was shown the door following less than three months at the helm of the SuperLig side.
Baxter left the Amakhosi at the end of last season by mutual agreement after guiding the Glamour Boys to a domestic league and Cup double.
According to KickOff, Baxter has now confirmed that indeed has been axed.
The coach says that the club's chairman had expectations that were probably through the roof following their undefeated pre-season.
Describing his final moments in charge of the club, Baxter says he has never met anyone like the Genclerbirligi chairman before.
“The chairman calls me in and rants at me, even going on about my family. Then he stops ranting and simply says; ‘Okay, you can pack your things and go,’" explains Baxter.
The meeting happened after two consecutive league defeats - a 3-2 defeat to Rizesport after leading 2-1 in the 89th minute and Baxter's second and final fixture in charge was the club's 3-1 defeat at the hands of Antalyaspor.
“He’s bonkers … off the wall. He had me in meetings every day. Injured players, he’d force them to attend four sessions a day with a personal trainer.
“The club’s general manager comes to me and says ‘What now?’ I say; ‘you tell me, do I have a job or not?’ He replies; ‘I don’t know’.”
