Cape Town - Stuart Baxter admits he is excited about his project at SuperSport United and has tipped his side to become a real force next season.

The former Kaizer Chiefs boss has called for Matsatsansa not to become complacent because of their Nedbank Cup triumph and feels that, with the right squad additions in the off-season, there's no reason why they can't challenge on all fronts.

"The most integral thing in sports or business is sustained success, to make sure you are not a one-hit wonder.," he told Times Live.

"You build on this success by challenging. We have to stretch ourselves. We have to add players to the squad that will help with competition."

Baxter admitted that a major overhaul was not needed upon his arrival - he just needed to instill some belief in a squad that lacked self-confidence.

"It's difficult when you walk in like that, not just for the coach but the players as well. When you come in and the players should have achieved more, they lose belief. The first thing I had to do is restore belief."
