AFCON 2019

How SAFA Will Make Baxter Decision…

SAFA president Danny Jordaan has given some sort of timeline with regards to when the association will decide Stuart Baxter’s future.

The national team coach has hinted that he may “step aside” if he concludes that he is not the right man to lead Bafana Bafana forward following his own introspection during his break in Sweden.

But Jordaan had long indicated to journalists that a decision will not be hurried on, indicating that the processes that will follow applies to all national team coaches and not just Baxter, who returned from the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt with Bafana on Saturday afternoon and faced the media at the airport.

“When the team is done playing, we will call a meeting and get reports from all of our coaches,” Jordaan said before Bafana were eliminated from the AFCON.

“From the under-17s, our women’s team all the way to our senior men’s team. We have a lot of young players in Europe – about 80 – and we want to know what our coaches did to try and watch those boys. So you need a coach that has the long-term vision because we have the players. They can compete.”

At the time Jordaan also added that Thabo Senong, who recently took the under-20 team to the World Cup in Poland, was also expected to submit a report despite being quoted in the media saying his contract with SAFA was not renewed last month. Desiree Ellis is also expected to submit a report after Banyana Banyana's World Cup participation in France.  

Jordaan was adamant that the organisation had not abandoned Vision 2022, but it remains to be seen whether Baxter, whose contract expires after the World Cup in the same year, will remain Bafana coach.   

The SAFA president is only expected back in the country at the end of the AFCON as he is serving his duties as a CAF executive member.
