High pressure is the name of the game at Kaizer Chiefs. Coach Stuart Baxter is carrying it all on his shoulders after a shock 1-0 loss to Golden Arrows in the previous outing.


Ahead of facing Chippa United on Saturday, Baxter shared his thoughts on what Amakhosi need in the upcoming final 10 games of the season.

According to the Brit, this final stretch of the season is a period of unscripted results.

“If you look at any league in the world, you see results at this time of the season that you can’t explain,” Baxter said via the club’s media.

“We know that is the game, we know what we need to do, which is give a performance of the quality needed to knock over an opponent that is desperate to get the points and desperate to knock over Kaizer Chiefs. 

The quality of our performance has to be of a nature that ensures there’s no discussion, not that it’s 50-50 and we’re hanging on. It’s got to be a really top-quality performance from us,” he concluded.

Amakhosi’s former coach Gavin Hunt has claimed the club’s management worked against him.

The image is still fresh in the memory. It is the day Amakhosi announced the four-time PSL champion as the new head coach in September 2020.

The stint took just eight months before Hunt was axed on May 2021 after a string of poor results, or was it really based on that? 

There were just two games remaining in the season with Kaizer Chiefs in 11th place, while there was also a CAF Champions League semi-final spot in the bag.

From his sum of 44 games, he won 12, drew 17, and lost 15.

I was told – I won’t say who the person was – I was told ‘we’d rather come sixth in the league and be knocked out first round of the Champions League,’” Hunt said. Read the full story here.
