Baxter Meets With SAFA Technical Committee

The Siya crew has it on good authority that Bafana Bafana Head coach has met with the South African Football Association’s technical committee to discuss a possible schedule for Bafana Bafana for 2018.  

The crew had reported that the Bafana mentor was scheduled to meet with SAFA’s TC to outline a plan for the national squad in the New Year.

Siya sources close to the FA have informed the crew that Baxter has in fact met with SAFA in a meeting that was attended by the likes of SAFA President Dr Danny Jordaan, CEO Dennis Mumble and Technical Director Neil Tovey.

Furthermore, the crew had reported that the FA was in favour of Bafana playing African opposition in an effort to prepare the national squad for the 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifiers as opposed to playing teams that have already qualified to compete in the FIFA World Cup in Russia.

According to sources among the issues tabled at the meeting included the matter of Bafana internationals Thulani Serero and Tokelo Rantie whom, as things stand will not be considered for selection when Baxter’s men resume the AFCON qualifiers in March 2018.

SAFA are expected to release a statement announcing some of the outcomes of the meetings.
