Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter has revealed that he is not desperate to keep South African football’s hottest sit after being knocked out of AFCON 2019 by Nigeria at the quarter-final stage.
Baxter and his charges arrived back home on Saturday from Egypt and the Englishman was clear in as far as his thoughts on the future is concerned.
“I’ve got no problems losing this job. Don’t confuse me with a coach that’s desperate for a job. I’ve turned down a job this week with another African nation, I’ve turned down a job last week with the Saudi. I’ve turned down jobs in Asia, I’ve turned down jobs in South Africa to stay with this team. I’m not desperate,” said Baxter as stated by Kick Off Magazine
“I stay and do the job because I want to do it and I think I can take the team forward. The second I don’t I’ll leave. Now don’t confuse with a desperate coach who will say ‘oh please don’t sack me’. I’ll do this job because I thought this national team needed direction and I think I’ve given it the first stage of that direction.,” he added.
