SuperSport United star, Thabo Mnyamane, has hailed praise for his head coach, Stuart Baxter, saying that he is glad to be working under the Englishman’s mentorship.
The midfielder joined Matsatsantsa from the University of Pretoria during the July transfer window period last year, 2016, where he is currently experiencing an illustrious time in his professional career under the mentorship of Baxter.
While challenging for the 2016/17 Absa Premiership title, Baxter has been tied in ongoing discussions with the South African Football Association about the head coach role at the national team.
However, speaking in an exclusive interview with Soccer Laduma, Mnyamane refrained from commenting on the matter of his head coach and Bafana, opting to rather praise the 63-year-old for his work in the Matsatsantsa camp.
“He is a great coach, he is one of a kind and he is a teacher of the game. I’m growing so much under him and not a day goes by without him teaching us something. He knows what he wants from players, he knows how he wants his team to play and he has a certain philosophy,” Mnyamane told Soccer Laduma.
“We as players are behind his philosophy, we respect it and we can see that’s its working. As an individual, I’m learning a lot from Coach Stuart and I’m glad that, at my age, I have a chance to work with him,” he added.
