Stuart Baxter says he needs time but that’s not a luxury at Kaizer Chiefs


Kaizer Chiefs legend Reneilwe ‘Yeye’ Letsholonyane is aware that it will take some time for Stuart Baxter to get it right at the club.

Baxter, who rejoined Amakhosi in June, has had a difficult start to the current campaign despite the management signing a number of quality players for him.

The Chiefs mentor has managed a single win in the seven games he has coached since his return, but Yeye feels Baxter and his technical team need time.

However, Yeye warned that when you are at Chiefs, time is not luxury, meaning Baxter will have to start winning games if he is to keep his job.

“Everything that you start seldom starts going OK overnight,” said Letsholonyane.

“I think it’s early days and Stuart and the technical team need time. Unfortunately, when you are involved with that team time is not a luxury.

“Yes, the team has bought many talented, good players but they need time to get used to each other,” he added.

“And I think they will come right. It’s just a matter of time, and then, yeah, it’s just a matter of them working hard to make that possible and to make sure that it doesn’t take them longer to get used to each other,” he said.

The last time Amakhosi lifted a major trophy, Yeye was still part of the team, and the retired midfielder admits everyone in the team needs to put in an effort for positive results to start coming.
