Stuart Baxter has been fired from Kaizer Chiefs, a decision most fans have been praying for! So far, his replacement hasn’t been announced but here are the 3 potential replacements – a list that’ll excite every Amakhosi supporter!
STUART BAXTER FIRED BY KAIZER CHIEFS!
Stuart Baxter and Amakhosi have parted ways, according to SoccerLaduma.
Chiefs fans have had their voices heard – loud and clear! From their chants demanding that Baxter leaves to their anger and outcry on social media…
Baxter now joins an elite list of veteran coaches axed in the PSL in quick sucession.
He joins Benni McCarthy and Lehlohonolo Seema as top coaches who are currently jobless but Baxter has an elite line-up of coaches ready to take over!
3 POTENTIAL FUTURE KAIZER CHIEFS COACHES
Baxter’s job continues to hang in the balance with Chiefs supporters losing patience.
This is because of the lack of silverware since he was re-appointed. Despite being allowed to sign several new players – 9 in total. This is a privilege that former coach Gavin Hunt did not have. This article outline the THREE potential replacements for Baxter
1. CAVIN JOHNSON
Cavin Johnson is currently available after returning from Egypt earlier last year.
He has expressed interest in coaching in the PSL with the obvious choice being one of the Soweto giants. Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates are historical SA football giants, with the biggest fan bases in South Africa.
Johnson has experience with Pitso Mosimane. He decided to return to SA for his family and now he is open to a return in the DStv Premiership.
With Baxter’s job hanging in the balance, the opportunity is alive and well for Johnson to coach at Naturena. If they can beat Pirates too his signature!
2. CARLOS QUEIROZ
Queiroz comes from the same area as Mosimane and Johnson.
The former Egyptian coach parted ways with Egypt after failing to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Queiroz is a veteran coach that will bring wisdom, leadership and experience to Chiefs. He is available and could benefit from a new start in SA with a club with massive history.
3. BENNI MCCARTHY
The dream choice for every Amakhosi fan, Bafana Bafana and Bucs legend, McCarthy.
McCarthy left AmaZulu after failing to qualify for the knockout stages of the CAF Champions League. However, he made history in eThekwini – reaching CAF and finishing second in the PSL. He has played UEFA Champions League football and is a legendary icon in SA football.
Imagine, one of the biggest names in SA coaching one of the biggest franchises.
McCarthy in charge of Chiefs is almost perfectly aligned but he is more likely to join his former club – Amakhosi’s rivals, the Buccaneers.
