Former Kaizer Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter is emerging as the number one candidate to take over the top job at SuperSport United following his departure from Amakhosi.

“We all know what Baxter is capable of and having been here before, chances are that he might come back because our relationship was a great one.

“We did not fire him but he left to take over Bafana Bafana and that was something we could not stand in the way of. Now that he is a free agent, anything is possible,” said a well-placed source in SuperSport’s camp.
