SuperSport To Jet Out, Leaving Baxter Behind
SuperSport United leave South Africa for the Democratic Republic of Congo this week, with a big game against TP Mazembe taking place at the weekend.
Matsatsantsa will be high on confidence following their last CAF Confederation Cup game, with Stuart Baxter’s side claiming a 5-3 victory away from home against CF Mounana in Gabon.
Baxter did not attend that game due to his Bafana Bafana commitments and will also not be making the trip to the DRC as the national team assembles in Johannesburg this week.
The Englishman is currently trying to juggle both the SuperSport and Bafana job before taking up a single role at SAFA in July and is currently only taking charge of Matsatsantsa’s games in South Africa.
Kaitano Tembo will once again take on the role of head coach against the reigning CCC champions in Lubumbashi and he will be hoping to bring a positive result home from the five-time CAF Champions League winners.
SuperSport leave for DRC on Friday morning before playing on Sunday, flying back to Mzansi on Monday before Dean Furman and Ronwen Williams report for international duty.
