TS Galaxy head coach Sead Ramovic, relatively new into the coaching scenes, says he has a lot of admiration for Kaizer Chiefs mentor Stuart Baxter.
Ramovic is also willing to bundle down to accomplish a fraction of what Baxter has achieved as a coach in South African football.
The German tactician led Galaxy to a 1-0 win over Chiefs on Saturday to book a spot in the Last 16 of the Nedbank Cup, where they will face Baroka.
“I have said it before, Mr Baxter has had a lot of success in his life. If I get 1% of the success that Baxter, had I will be happy,” said Ramovic.
Baxter has enjoyed success in SA football with two Premiership titles to his name, including four Nedbank Cups, two MTN8 titles and steered Bafana Bafana to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) quarterfinals in Egypt.
However, Baxter, who had two stints as Bafana coach, failed to qualify for the 2006 and 2018 World Cups.
“Yes, I have played with one of the best players in the world, yes I had one of the best coaches in the world, I saw a lot of quality things, but you also have to work hard as a coach and improve yourself day by day,” added Ramovic.
“I’m new in this business of coaching, and I am happy about it because I worked hard for myself,” concluded Ramovic, who is on a Uefa Pro licence programme, which is the highest coaching qualification in the world, according to Galaxy boss Tim Sukazi.
