Baxter: Money Is Not Their Motivation

Bafana Bafana head coach has revealed that money plays no role in motivating his side. 

This comes after it was reported that the Nigerian national team would scoop huge sums of money if they scored or won the game against Bafana this past weekend in the Africa Cup Of Nations qualifying encounter. 

Baxter revealed that his side does not need money to motivate them, as they want to do the job for the country.

“Team unity is important. The lads (players) want to be here, want to learn and are talking the same language. They get along with each other and that type of unity is priceless,” Baxter said on SAFA’ official website.

“Money is not their motivational drive, these players want to do the job for the country and other things will follow,” he added.

The South African national team will host Paraguay tomorrow at the Moses Mabhida Stadium as part of the annual Nelson Mandela Challenge Centenary celebrations.

“It is fitting that in the name of Mandela whose passion was to develop the youth that we get valuable international experience and prepare some of our players for the future."

“The main priority for Nigeria was to win the game, that was our main aim against Nigeria. With this one (Paraguay game) we are looking more on the development but we will also play to win although it’s should not be a win at all costs. In our team selection, we will ask youngsters to play – balance between winning and development.

“These type of games are important because we experiment, we take the criticism if we don’t win but the main agenda is that we need to broaden the squad and give youngsters experience, which will be invaluable going forward,” Baxter added.
