Amakhosi Job: Six Coaches for Chiefs Job, Including Baxter?

Patrick Mabedi has been tasked with taking the team forward until the end of the season, with the Amakhosi management seeking to identify the long-term fix prior to the start of the 2018/19 campaign.

When confirming Mabedi as the interim coach earlier this week, the club added, “In the meantime, the search is on to find a new coach for next season.”
