Pretoria- SuperSport United midfielder Michael Morton has praised head coach Stuart Baxter's impact at the club.

The former Kaizer Chiefs mentor took over at Matsatsantsa following the sacking of Gordon Igesund at the beginning of the year and has since changed the Pretoria giants’ fortunes in domestic competitions.

The 27-year-old star believes that despite Baxter’s good playing philosophy, it is already too late at this stage of the season for United to contest for the Absa Premiership title.

“As far as the league is concerned, it’s too late for us to compete now,” said Morton.

“But his (Baxter) presence is so refreshing, he really changed our mind set immediately and I love his tactical approaches and the way he get his points across.

“The boys are just sitting there taking all in and you can see the positive impacts he has already in the couple of months.

“And obviously the way he wants us to play is a process to get used to and it won’t come overnight but you can see the glimpses of it in the last couple of games.

“So it’s definitely making a positive effect so far, so as a team we are enjoying that,” Morton added.
