- Amakhosi coach, Ernst Middendorp, is not happy with rumours that Baxter may return to the team
- Talks of Stuart Baxter returning to the squad have gained momentum
- In response the agitated Middendorp lashed out at the gossip
Ernst Middendorp has not responded well to the talks of Stuart Baxter returning to Kaizer Chiefs. It is reported that he nearly blew a fuse when quizzed about growing speculation linking the ex-Bafana Bafana coach with a return to the Glamour Boys.
According to the Daily Sun, the agitated man said:
”If Kaizer Chiefs has an idea to bring Stuart Baxter they should do it, thank you!"
Many fans have called for Baxter to make a return to Naturena after his recent resignation from the national squad. Briefly.co.za reported that Stuart Baxter threw in the towel a few days ago. After Bafana Bafana's poor performance at the 2019 Afcon tournament, Mzansi football fans called for Baxter to step down. Rumours suggested Baxter might resign after he called a private press conference. The Bafana Bafana verified Twitter account confirmed the speculations. He has been linked with a move to either Kaizer Chiefs or Supersport United.
And Middendorp is clearly not impressed. The coach may have been given some time to prove his worth after his winning drought ended last night. The Glamour Boys claimed a hard-fought victory against Highlands Park, beating them 3-2.
