Baxter to return to the PSL?

Stuart Baxter is a PSL veteran who has coached Chiefs for two stints, as well as SuperSport United. The 70-year-old has won eight domestic trophies in South Africa including three league titles. This week he parted ways with Helsingborgs who currently play in the second tier of Swedish football.

“I have gotten to know HIF in a completely different way this year than I did before,” Baxter told the club’s media following his departure. 

“When we played the Europa League and cup finals, the atmosphere was one and when a big threat of another relegation was staring us in the face, it was another,” said Baxter as per iDiski Times.

“I got to see the supporters take on a completely different role this year than when we played European matches and finals. They were loyal, showed the way and were a great support when we needed them. It was therefore fitting that in the end it was they who helped us over the line. 

“I want to thank all the players, those who supported and everyone who in some way helped us through this tough season,” said the English coach.
