Stuart Baxter Leaves Kaizer Chiefs

After a successful stint at the Glamour Boys, Stuart Baxter leaves for what reports claim to be Turkey despite previous countless rumours of stalking by SAFA.
SAFA are in the hunt for a Technical Director and my gut feeling is that he is headed there.
Speculation as to who takes over at the club where they are selling their best material at the shelves is rising.
My take is that they are cashing in because Baxter is going and the new guy must get into the market for his own material, but I think it is too much.
I guess they are prepared to destroy and start from scratch.
It can be good or detrimental but I think they calculated the risk given how much they made and they stand to make.
I couldnt be that bold though.
Steve Komphela can do a good job but as usual, as seen by these sales, he wont buy the best players that money can buy like Baxter did.
Though good and likely to deliver, he will have to do so with minimal resources and support.
He is shrewd and can make local football very exciting like what Papic did with Pirates seasons back.
