"We played well. I think we gave it our best. We knew that it was never going to be a walk in the park, but I must give credit to my boys," said Baxter.

Despite the fact that this was his first season in the PSL, and he became the first coach to win the league and the cup as a foreigner, he said his boys responded well to his principles.

"As you know that a lot was said about me when I arrived at Chiefs, but I had to keep my mouth shut and focus on my job.

"I am now sure that those who doubted me, are now singing a different song," he said.

The last time Chiefs won this competition, it was in Durban where they beat Orlando Pirates 3-0 and the competition was called the Absa Cup.

With regards to next season the coach made it clear that they will have to start from scratch.

"When the season begins we will not be champions and we will have to start from scratch.

"Although this not a night to talk about which players I will be adding or letting go off, but I will be making changes so that I tighten up the squad," he said.
