“Why Baxter Is The Right Man To Take Bafana To The World Cup” – Reader’s Voice

“Why Baxter Is The Right Man To Take Bafana To The World Cup” – Reader’s Voice

By Mzwazwazwa - Apr 24, 2017 11:28 AM

Stuart Baxter is reportedly set to be announced the new Bafana Bafana head coach. This is Baxter's second spell, as he was the coach between 2004 and 2005.

Baxter was brought back to the country by Kaizer Motaung a few years ago to coach Kaizer Chiefs. He was unfairly judged by the South African media and football fans upon his return, based on his controversial spell with Bafana Bafana, being given funny nicknames such as "Mr CV cooker".

 Now a head coach for SuperSport United, Baxter has won multiple league and cup titles in Mzansi, proving to his doubters that he is amongst the best tacticians in the country.

His unsuccessful spell in Turkey with Genclerbirligi was a blessing in disguise for SuperSport and Bafana. Baxter knows our players inside and out; he knows their strengths and limitations. He knows the set-up at SAFA, having been at the helm before, and he knows how SA football needs to be developed in order to be a force to be reckoned with in world football.

Baxter's experience will surely be an asset to the country as he needs no introduction to both South Africa and African football. His success in the country proves that he is the right man to take us to the world cup.

nah baxter will never be good for our national team. he wants his son to be the goal keeper coach of bafana, ppl should be employed bcoz they have the qualifications and experience to help our national team, not bcoz their father is the head coach. he doesnt stay for more than 3 seasons/years at one club.

Baxter's reported illness could be a sign that his announcement is emminent. Owen da Gama has won a lot of hearts in the meantime.

Not enough is being said about the "comitee" that was tasked to find a new bafana coach. Can laduma conduct an interview with either Benni Mcarthy or Lucas Radebe to find out about the processes and see what progress they have made.

But we can't afford to watch grannies in Bafana. If he can turn SSU into Chiefs-B what will stop him from turning Bafana to Chiefs&SSU remix?

Mxm Baxter believes too much to old players and its not good for the national team. Bring fresh blood please SAFA someone who believe in young-stars atlleast 30 years must be a maximum age to bafana if Russia 2018 is anything to go by..Give atleast ODG instead of Baxter
