Baxter On AFCON Pressure And The Use Of VAR…

Stuart Baxter has been getting his charges ready before jetting out to Egypt in the coming days. 

Bafana Bafana are currently preparing for the group stages of the 2019 Africa Cup Of Nations, where they will be locking horns with Ivory Coast in their first clash later this month.  

Speaking to the media, Bafana Head Coach Baxter addressed the pressure ahead of the competition.

“I hope that we can do something in AFCON that will make people believe that our football is moving in the right direction,” Baxter told the media.

“For me, the pressure is there all the time, it’s not just there because someone says that we need to make the nation happy. The players have to perform. 

“I think once we start to get it working to the needs of the game, it will be an asset but I can agree with people that sometimes it looks a little bit disjointed at the moment but I think as with everything, the teething problems we will get over that.”

Baxter then went on to comment on the use of the Video Assistant Referee, following the incident in the CAF Champions League final.

“I would think any system has got to work to be assessed properly, if we keep on saying that it broke down after 30 minutes or whatever, then there will be serious questions asked about it,” he added.
