Baxter left Chiefs last season for Europe but has now returned to the South Africa to coach SuperSport United. The Englishman was reunited with former Chiefs striker Kingston Nkhatha at Matsatsantsa and has said he wouldn’t mind having a few Chiefs players in his United squad.

Baxter has been vocal about his achievements at Chiefs and the playing personnel of the Soweto giants in recent interviews, something that seems to have annoyed Motaung.

“Every day we read about him talking about Chiefs, that history is gone we have closed that chapter. Its Steve Komphela’s time at Chiefs, he must talk about SuperSport I think it’s only fair with due respect. And Chiefs players are Chiefs, he found them here and left them here, so I think he must start a new life at SuperSport,” said Motaung.

SuperSport United and Kaizer Chiefs will lock horns on Saturday night at the Cape Town Stadium in an Absa Premier League match.
