Baxter: I’m Truly Sorry
Posted: 10 June 2021
Newly-appointed Kaizer Chiefs Head Coach Stuart William Baxter has once again apologized for comments he made after a post-match interview at his former club in India.
The Englishman, hugely dissatisfied with the decision of not being awarded a penalty, said in a heated interview;
“I think one of my players would have to rape someone or get raped himself if he was going to get a penalty.”
Baxter, upon being revealed yesterday at Naturena, apologised once more, saying;
“Given the unfortunate nature of my exit in India, and the unfortunate comments, and to be very honest, stupid comments that I made, I felt very strongly to make another apology before I recommencing my work here in South Africa.
“Anything that I said, that offended anybody, I humbly apologize. It looked like I was making a joke, I was not, I was not, that was absolutely not my intention. That does not reflect me as a person, but I do know that many people were upset, and for that, I’m truly sorry.
“In future, there will not be an issue with me making such clumsy, insensitive and downright stupid comments. I really hope that anyone who was affected by my insensitive words, will accept my heartfelt apology,” he concluded.
Baxter returns to The Phefeni Glamour Boys on a three-year deal (two + one, with the one based on performances and results), with his first fixture against bitter rivals Orlando Pirates Football Club in the Carling Cup in late July.
