Revoredo died unexpectedly on 30 August last year, at the age of 57, after a short illness.

The club on Monday confirmed the appointment of former SuperSport United goalkeeper coach Lee Baxter as his successor with immediate effect.

Baxter, the son of current Bafana Bafana and former Chiefs coach Stuart, has penned a two-and-a-half year deal with the Naturena-based outfit.

“We welcome Lee into our Kaizer Chiefs family. Coaching goalkeepers is a very specialised field. Lee is young, ambitious and he will bring a lot of international experience," said Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung on his club's website, of Baxter's experience in Sweden, Turkey and Denmark.

"Roping Lee in is part of the bigger picture of developing goalkeepers for the future. We are looking forward to this partnership which will take our youth development structures to greater heights.”

Former Amakhosi shot-stopper Brian Baloyi, who has been in charge of the goalkeepers since Revoredo's passing, will now return to his coaching duties, along with Rory Minnaar, while 41-year-old Baxter heads the department.
