Stuart Baxter: Kaizer Chiefs Confirm Parting Ways With Head Coach

South Africa Premier League giants Kaizer Chiefs have parted ways with head coach Stuart Baxter following a string of poor results.

Baxter has been sent packing, leaving the club under Arthur Zwane and Dillon Sheppard who will take charge for the remainder of the season.

The last game Baxter oversaw for Kaizer Chiefs was the 2-1 defeat to SuperSport United on April 16 at FNB Stadium.

The Englishman departure comes few hours after speculations had emerged surrounding his future.

“After a series of meetings, Kaizer Chiefs and coach Stuart Baxter have come to a mutual agreement of an early termination of his contract with immediate effect,” read the club statement.

“In his second spell with Kaizer Chiefs, Baxter has led the team in 23 matches (excluding 3 league matches in December 2021). He managed to win 9 matches, draw 6 and lost 8 of the games. The team managed to score 25 goals and concede 23 during that time.

“We wish him well in the future. The Club will make further announcements in due course.”

In Baxter’s previous spell in charge of Chiefs, he was at the helm of the club for 90 league games and managed to lead Chiefs to 55 victories, with a points per match ratio of 2.10, the most by any permanent Chiefs coach in the PSL era, with just 24 draws and 11 losses.
