Kaizer Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter has expressed his desire to lead Kaizer Chiefs to glory against the mighty Al Ahly in TotalEnergies CAF Champions League final in Casablanca tonight.
Baxter is aware of the monumental task ahead but has confidence in the ability of his team.
“I knew the club’s situation well when I agreed to come back. I have been working with the players for some time, but being back on the bench is different. Having to watch the team from the stands was difficult but now I’m back and happy to be on the bench,” said Baxter at the Pre-match press conference ahead of tonight’s game.
“We have made many surprises on the road to the final, but can we have one more? We will see.
“Pitso Mosimane (Al Ahly coach) has a very good history in the continent. I respect him and we faced each other before. On the night, past experiences will not affect the game. Each game has its own scenarios.”
Baxter is certain that his team can pull a surprise victory despite carrying the underdog tag.
“Al Ahly were expected to be here, we were not. We are the underdogs for most of the people, but in football you should believe, I have great respect for Al Ahly but we believe we can get a good result.”
