SAFA Officially Unveil Stuart Baxter As New Bafana Coach

The South African Football Association has officially unveiled Stuart Baxter as the new Bafana Bafana head coach at the SAFA House today, after confirming his appointment at the helm on May 04.

It has been months since Shakes Mashaba’s dismissal from the national team and the South African football fraternity can finally look ahead as the saga of finding the next best man for the job has finally been put to bed.

After several weeks of ongoing talks and negotiations between the association and Coach Baxter, the main focus can now be fully shifted on the country’s upcoming AFCON, CHAN and 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The Englishman has made his first official address as the head coach of the national team today, May 15, with the first task being to prepare for the Bafana’s upcoming Africa Cup Of Nation’s opening qualifier against Nigeria on the weekend of June 9 to 11.  

"Stuart Baxter will name his squad for Nigeria on 25 May. The match will be played in Uyo on 10 June," SAFA confirmed on their official Twitter account.
