Amakhosi succumbed to a 1-0 loss to TS Galaxy, and the defeat saw their fans grow frustrated with Baxter so much so that they are calling for his sacking.

Baxter said his long-term goal is to create a balanced Chiefs squad by managing the selling and buying of players as well as promoting the younger ones from the development.

Furthermore, Baxter said winning the Nedbank Cup was a short-term goal but he admitted that Chiefs threw away the chance of having a good winning run to build on.

“The long-term goal is balancing the squad, buying and selling the players, bringing through some kids and finding a way to get all our better players on the field. All of that is a bit more medium to long term,” Baxter told reporters.

“The Cup is short-term. So, we didn’t want to throw that chance away but I think we have done that, and therefore, no one is happy with that or with the performance.

“It’s a Cup we didn’t win and now we have to show in the league that we are building something that can lead to something next season,” he continued.

KAIZER CHIEFS AS GUILTY AS MANCHESTER UNITED – BAXTER

What Baxter doesn’t want is to see Chiefs turn into a one-season building team, saying that’s what Manchester United have become over the past five to six years.

In his own words, Baxter said perhaps Chiefs are also guilty of making the same mistake as the Red Devils.

“We don’t want to be a one-season building team and then rip the house down and then start building again every season which is a little bit of a curse for one of the bigger clubs,” Baxter explained.

“Take Manchester United… they’ve done that for the last five or six years, and maybe that is something that Chiefs have also been guilty of, that we keep going for one good year and then start again.”

“We have to marry the short-term goals with the medium and long-term goals, and that’s not easy when you are at a club like Chiefs that has demands from themselves and their supporters,” concluded Baxter.
