Odisha FC has officially announced Stuart Baxter as thier new coach ahead of the next season.

Odisha FC has finally announced successor of Josep Gombau as the head coach and it all started when Josep Gombau and also the club mutually decided to part their ways after the conclusion of ISL 2019-20 season. Stuart Baxter comes with a bundle of experience, where he has worked along with some of the biggest names in world football and he was also a great player at his prime. Baxter comes with an experience of over 33 years in coaching where he has also managed big national teams like South Africa twice and also the national team of Finland.

Baxter came into limelight after his not so great stint with Finland after he was appointed as their head coach in 2008. He was unable to develop a good relationship with some of the key players there and that was the major trouble back then which led to the decline of the national team of Finland. Baxter’s most memorable stint has got to be with the Kaizers Chiefs, where he made his team play some sublime football and was loved by each and every fan there. Baxter managed to win three trophies with Kaizers Chiefs in just three seasons, but he later decided to leave the club for new ventures.

The last team that Stuart Baxter managed was the South African National Team where he liked to play a defensive style of play and heavily relied on his pacey wingers for counter attacks. If reports are to be believed, almost every South African wanted the association to sack him because of his style of play. He did work with some of the greatest South African talents but surely couldn’t get the best out of them, but maybe his best days are yet to come.

Odisha FC finished 6th last season under the guidance of Josep Gombau, but they would be looking to do better this season after the arrival of the new Scottish coach. All the Odisha FC fans surely have a very expectation from the coach and also from all the young Indian players that they have signed. If everthing goes according to the plan for Odisha FC, then they are surely bringing the silverware home very soon.
