The South African Football Association (SAFA) has named the replacement for Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter, who resigned on Friday.
SAFA released a statement on Saturday evening, announcing Molefi Ntseki as the interim coach.
Ntseki is the under-17 SA coach and was Baxter’s assistant at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. The statement read in part:
- - - Buy NetOne, Telecel Airtime on WhatsApp using EcoCash.
Send the word Airtime to +263 714 815 229
No extra charges. - - -
Given that Ntseki has been with Bafana Bafana for quite a while now, it was felt that in the interest of continuity, and given the upcoming fixtures in September, Ntseki is best placed to follow through with the foundation that has been laid by coach Baxter, who resigned on Friday, 2 August 2019.
… While we intend to use our best endeavours to resolve the Bafana Bafana head coach matter by the end of the month, it is to be understood that with these matters, it involves complex negotiations with the potential replacement, and therefore not always possible to resolve such matters in a short space of time.
