Coach set to follow Baxter out Kaizer Chiefs exit door

Premiership

An additional first-team coach is expected to follow Stuart Baxter out the Kaizer Chiefs exit door following his dramatic sacking.

Chiefs announced on Thursday that the 68-year-old had been relieved of his duties by mutual agreement, bringing to an end an underwhelming second spell at Naturena.

Baxter's son Lee, who fulfilled the role of first-team goalkeeper coach, is now believed set to follow his father out the Naturena exit door at the end of the season.

The senior Baxter has since been replaced by assistant coaches Arthur Zwane and Dillon Sheppard on an interim basis.

Chiefs had recently also announced the addition of Aubrey Mathibe as a goalkeeper coach who is being tipped to replace Lee within the Chiefs technical team.

"Lee's contract with Kaizer Chiefs is set to expire in June this year. The club is already preparing for life without him after the arrival of Aubrey Mathibe as goalkeeper coach," a source close to the club tells KickOff.

Chiefs will be aiming to get back to winning ways when they travel to Stellenbosch FC in a DStv Premiership clash at the Danie Craven Stadium on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 17:00.
