“Could It Be The Bafana Job That Hindered SuperSport’s Title Race?” – Reader’s

SuperSport United were one of the promising sides gunning for the Absa Premiership title, but things started falling apart when their coach started talks with SAFA regarding the Bafana job.

The ship started to sink when Pitso Mosimane’s Mamelodi Sundowns beat them 5-0 in the Tshwane derby and also finished the job the following week when they beat them 1-0. Since then they have not really picked up their game and their hopes of laying their hands on the Absa Premiership trophy faded after they failed to beat the struggling Bloemfontein Celtic. In this match, they only managed one point, taking them to 42 points behind Kaizer Chiefs, who are four points clear of them in fourth place.

Now their last resort is the Nedbank cup and they can only pray that they don't stumble again when they are this close to securing their second chance at silverware this season. They find themselves in the semi-finals after they beat Kaizer Chiefs in the quarter-finals, after the so-called veteran Kaizer Chiefs striker, Bernard Parker, missed a penalty.

Is it possible that SuperSport’s drop in form was because Stuart Baxter was negotiating with SAFA and lost focus with the task at hand?
