Stuart Baxter says Kaizer Chiefs have a future to look forward to

Briefly News previously reported that Stuart Baxter only recently got back to his position as the Kaizer Chiefs boss but he is optimistic about the future. The club has made a number of new signings and their Carling Black Label Cup performance was one to remember.

Chiefs utilised the game to show off their new signings with fans getting to watch Cole Alexander and Brandon Peterson in action. Peterson would have made a strong argument to be the Chiefs' first-choice keeper in the upcoming season.

“The game gave me good information. The supporters wanted us to win it and beat the old enemy but most importantly, we got valuable information that we will use going forward," said Baxter.
