Delay ‘Not Helpful’ As Baxter/Bafana Saga Drags On

Stuart Baxter Has Admitted That The Bafana Situation Isn't Helpful

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 21, 2017 04:40 PM
It’s now been over three weeks since SuperSport United confirmed that they had given SAFA permission to approach Stuart Baxter, but there’s still no end in sight.
 
 
SAFA’s efforts to bring in Shakes Mashaba’s replacement before two friendly games that took place last month proved unsuccessful as they ended up with Owen da Gama on the bench following their failure to land Carlos Queiroz, Hugo Broos or Herve Renard.
 
Now, having turned their attentions to Baxter, there still seems to be no finalisation with the matter and the delay has led to even more uncertainty.
 
SuperSport have lost all three of their league games since SAFA made their interest in Baxter public, however, they have progressed into the Nedbank Cup quarterfinals and reached the group stages of the CAF Confederation Cup. 
 
 
The Englishman believes that their form cannot be blamed solely on his outstanding issues with SAFA, saying, ’“It’s obviously very difficult to quantify how people feel and in getting inside their heads. I would say that undoubtedly the uncertainty is not helping us. The uncertainty of people saying things that are not true in newspapers about me or the situation is not helpful. 
 
“So without being able to quantify it, it would certainly be one of the ingredients in sapping the energy – like travelling, like overloading, like tough games week after week – it would certainly be a contributing factor. Just how much though is difficult to quantify.”
 
SuperSport take on Kaizer Chiefs in the Nedbank Cup tomorrow for a spot in the semifinals.

SAFA should show respect to the nation by not appointing this club material.
