"I did all the negotiations with the club without the coach being present or involved in any of them," Nkosi tells KickOff.com.
"I only met the coach at the first day of pre-season training. The last time I saw him was when he was the coach of Bafana Bafana," explained Nkosi before giving his thanks to the man that gave him his first showing in a South African jersey.
"I will forever be grateful to him (Baxter) because he gave me my first cap in the national team and I have always said that he is the person who introduced me to ‘real time football'.
"So for me working with him again is a good thing, but he was not the main reason I came back here (to Chiefs), it was because I wanted to achieve things with the club and bring back the glory days along with him and my new team-mates."
Speaking of team-mates, Nkosi added that he was not threatened by the host of quality in the Amakhosi ranks, but rather inspired by it.
"I do not see my teammates as competition. I see them as one of those people that I will form a puzzle with and contribute together to the success of the team.
"My team-mates will never be my competitors in my eyes, so my responsibility is to present myself as best as I can in front of the technical team and they will make the best decision.
"Any player to me in the team is my colleague and not a threat," says the new Chiefs man.
