South African Football Association Appoint New Coach

The South African Football Association (SAFA) has appointed Stuart Baxter as the new Bafana Bafana coach. Stuart Baxter comes in at a time where the national team has an upcoming match in the Africa Cup Of Nation’s opening qualifier against Nigeria.

Negotiations between Stuart Baxter and SAFA had been going on for weeks before the announcement. Bafana Bafana were urgently in need of a new coach since, the former coach, Shakes Mashaba was dismissed from the national team.

Stuart Baxter added the following:
“I gained respect with my results. We should try to unite the whole country through this beautiful (game). I came back because I see greater things SAFA is trying to build for this great country. I hope we will be very competitive with Nigeria. We will give them a game. I’m really looking forward to this latest challenge. If I wasn’t ready, I would not have accepted the challenge. I haven’t finalised my Technical Team but am working on it. I enjoy challenges hence I took this job. I’m very optimistic. If we can pull together but don’t be too negative because it will affect everyone,”
