Latest On Baxter/Bafana: No Demands For Technical Team

Stuart Baxter Is Still In Negotiations With SAFA About The Bafana Job

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 05, 2017 04:01 PM
Stuart Baxter and the South African Football Association are still locked in talks about the Englishman taking over at Bafana, with nothing having been finalised just yet.
 
 
Baxter has been focused on SuperSport United since his side gave SAFA permission to speak to him about taking over from Shakes Mashaba. He oversaw the club's Nedbank Cup victory over KwaDukuza United which takes them into the quarterfinals of the competition. 
 
 
Now, it is thought that the 63-year-old will turn his attention to dealing with the Bafana issue prior to leaving for Liberia this weekend so as to avoid disrupting the team as they prepare for the CAF Confederation Cup.
 
There have been reports that Baxter has been offered an annual salary of R12 million by SAFA and that, as with many coaches around the world, he wants to bring his own technical team. 
 
It has been suggested that Baxter will look to bring physical trainer, Josh Smith, who worked with him at Chiefs, Genclerbirligi and now Matsatsantsa, as well as his son, goalkeeper coach, Lee Baxter, who is currently working in Scandinavia.
 
However, as reported in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, the Siya crew have been informed that while talks are ongoing with SAFA, they are yet to reach a decision regarding the financials of the deal or who Baxter would look to bring on board if he accepts the position.
 
The crew was also informed by sources within the SAFA set-up that, if Baxter was to recommend people for positions on his technical team, they are neither prerequisites nor deal-breakers with regards to him signing or not.
 
The former Chiefs coach refused to comment on the situation, telling the crew, “I’ve got nothing more to say on the matter. I’m focused on SuperSport at the moment, and if you’ve gotten information from SAFA, then I’ve no more to add.”
 
There is expected to be more clarity on the Bafana position in the coming days, with all of the parties hoping to reach a quick conclusion so that things can move forward.

Baxter is not an answer to BB coaching position, this guy is a dictator, complains too much, and lack African Championship pedigree and has never succeded in Africa. SAFA look elsewhere i.e. Herve, Broos or Pitso this threesome have conquered Africa

Sltv - Pitso Determined To Reach Club World Cup Again Sundowns have never gone five league games without victory since Mosimane took over from Johan Neeskens back in 2012, but that could happen tonight against a Celtic side that will be battling for their lives at the other end of the table. Having gone four games without a win for the first time in almost exactly a year (between April 8th and April 29th, 2015), the Brazilians will be desperate to get back to winning ways in Pretoria this evening. Failure to pick up three points would signal the club’s current form as their worst since Mosimane arrived, and dent their title hopes as they remain eight points behind City and seven behind second-placed Bidvest Wits. Victory, however, would see Sundowns leapfrog SuperSport United in fourth place and start breathing down Chiefs’ necks who currently have five points and four games more than them. Sundown' last four league games have seen them lose to City and Chiefs, as well as drawing with Polokwane City and Chippa United. 1813 views 8 comments Mamelodi Sundowns Premier Soccer League Bloemfontein Celtic Pitso Mosimane NEXT ARTICLE Doc Wants Bafana Coaching Situation Finalised View Article Related News Latest On Baxter/Bafana: No Demands For Technical Team Arrests & Corruption?

SAFA is ran by useless committee. I mean what are we (fans) going to benefit from Baxter who plays defensive football of parking the bus? We are not only interested in results, but entertaining football is owed, unless Chiefs fans who are used to bought results.
