Stuart Baxter has not been short of options since he left Kaizer Chiefs towards the end of last season, according to his agent Steve Kapeluschnik.

Kapeluschnik, who has been the long-time agent of the 69-year-old Englishman in South Africa, said he has options in the Middle East, Africa and in Sweden.

iDiski Times revealed on Wednesday that he has courted attention in Zambia, who are looking for a new coach before the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers resume in March next year.

Stuart Baxter has been clubless since he parted ways with Kaizer Chiefs on 21 April towards the end of last season after winning just 11 of his 26 matches in charge during his second stint at Naturena.

Chiefs then appointed Arthur Zwane and Dillion Sheppard to be caretaker coaches until the end of the season before the former got Chiefs job on a permanent basis during the off-season.

That was the last time Baxter had a job and despite his second stint not being able to reach the same heights as his first, he has not been short of options, with locally and internationally.

“There was some interest in South Africa but he wasn’t ready,” Kapeluschnik told iDiski Times at the World Football Summit in Durban.

“The projects weren’t right but I’m not going to name the clubs because it is not appropriate.

“Now he has gone back home to Sweden – there is something in Sweden that is on the cards, one [offer] in the Middle East.”

Interestingly, Baxter’s son, Lee, who was released at the end of the season after serving four years as the goalkeeper coach for Chiefs, has joined Swedish side IFK Göteborg.
