Baxter ignores Zwane’s handshake, leads to split rumours

A clip on Twitter showing Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter exchanging congratulations with his technical team after the game but ignoring Arthur Zwane has sparked rumors of a split.

Some have suggested that there are tensions between Baxter and his assistant, which is why he ignored him. The video shows Zwane trying to extend his hand, but quickly withdraws when Baxter walks away.

The incident happened after Amakhosi destroyed their bitter traditional rivals Orlando Pirates 2-1 in a DStv Premiership game on Saturday afternoon.

Zwane was interim coach of Chiefs after the resignation of Gavin Hunt last season and guided the team to the final in the Café Champions League. However, he was replaced by Stuart Baxter in the final which they eventually lost to Pitso Mosimane’s Al Ahly.

And since Baxter didn’t strike the right note with some in the Amakhosi stalwarts, calls have been made throughout the season for Zwane to be reinstated as head coach.
