Last week, SAFA finally announced who the next man in charge of Bafana Bafana will be – English tactician Stuart Baxter. But which South Africans could take over one day?
South African football has had a longstanding mentality that foreign coaches are always better, but that isn't necessarily true.
Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt has often voiced his opinion that he believes local tacticians are just as good as any coach, and he has admitted he would like to head up the national team bench one day.
Roger De Sa is another name that could very well be on the famous green and gold bench one day, along with Chippa United's Dan Malesela, who has asserted himself as one of the best coaches in Mzansi this season.
