A former Kaizer Chiefs coach and club legend has explained why he doubts that the club will achieve immediate success under returning mentor Stuart Baxter.

The local football fraternity has been abuzz since the Soweto giants’ announcement on Wednesday that Baxter has returned to the club as head coach on a two-year deal plus option, with the team’s fans excited about the possibility of going back to the glory days by winning trophies under the Englishman.

In 2015, when Amakhosi last won the league title, Baxter was at the helm as their coach, having won the the title in the previous season as well, before his move to join Genclerbirligi in Turkey. 

However, ex-Chiefs goalkeeper and coach Joseph ‘Banks’ Setlhodi believes that things might be different for Baxter this time around based on the players that he will be working with, compared to what he had during his previous spell.   

“For now, there is really not much that I can comment on because if you look at the team now, it is up to Baxter to decide how he is going to change the team. He will have to decide if he is going to continue with the team that he has inherited or if he is going to change it,” he said.

“Let’s talk facts here, Chiefs don’t have the material to win trophies. There is no way that Chiefs will wait and say that they will be grooming players to achieve success. For Baxter do to well at Chiefs now, he should go for readymade material (in the transfer window). He has to go for proven professional footballers. Along the way, he will have to combine the young players at the club with the seasoned players so that maybe after one season he can bring in four or five other young players into the team,” added Setlhodi.

Everybody is entitled to his/her own opinion.i also agree with mr setlhodi.we can only point/count few players who are quality at chiefs. Most of them are average.i love mathoho with my whole heart,but he can't run,and he is easily beaten when he is on 1 on 1 situation.sasman,zulu,ntiyanta ya are average.cardoso is also weak.ngezana is not solid,our keepers are not the middle its only zuma,nqcobo,manyama who can play.blom is good but not dominant.upfront its only khama who is a threat to opponents,but he is forever injured.nurkovic and castro only thrive when the team play long and high balls. Our only pacey stiker (kambole)is totally not performing.if chiefs can loose to teams that they used to dominate.amazulu/chippa/maritz burg,etc.then chiefs in no longer playing like a big team.lets face it guys,we are descending.

@Bongluv mccarthy You forget like a Chicken now. You are the one who was not aware that there are official and plastic cups, then we had to educate you. You thought Black Label Official and Macufe were official. Anyway, I don't have to argue with you coz u will be wasting my time. You are the one who said that Chiefs have 76 cups.
