Confirmed: Baxter’s Bafana Brains Trust…

Stuart Baxter has named the people that he will have involved as part of his Bafana Bafana technical team for the 2019 African Cup of Nations.

The South African national side will go up against the Ivory Coast, Namibia and Morocco at the AFCON in Egypt this year, and Baxter hasn’t opted to make any changes with regards to the people that he has trusted to come along for the ride.
 
 
Molefi Ntseki will remain as Baxter’s right hand man, while Andre Arendse stays on as goalkeeper coach. AmaZulu conditioning coach Joshua Smith – with whom the coach worked with at Kaizer Chiefs, SuperSport United and Genclerbirligi in Turkey – will also return as the physical coach, and will work closely with team doctor, Thulani Ngwenya.
 
Speaking to the media about his brains trust, Baxter said, “Molefi has been outstanding with me. I have to say that sometimes the assistant is there, but not there to you guys. But Molefi has been great for me when we are in camp. We discuss things, he does not just listen and say ‘yes’. We try very much to speak the same language with the players, even though his language is a little bit difficult for me to understand sometimes, but he has been brilliant and he will continue.”
 
Baxter went on to explain the rest of his team saying, “We’ve got Josh Smith as the physical coach and Andre Arendse as the goalkeeper coach. Then Thulani will be the team doctor, and he is a credit to his profession. We enjoy having him.”
 
Bafana will assemble for camp early next month.
