Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter has sensationally said that he received text messages from both Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger over the team’s performance at AFCON 2019.

South Africa were knocked out by Nigeria in the quarter finals of the continental showpiece and some fans of the team took to various forms of social media criticizing the Englishman, who then claimed that the two renowned managers completed the team.

“Before we came, just by the way, when we got on the plane in Addis Ababa, Ethiopian airlines, they presented us with a cake, they made a big ceremony on the plane because they thought that we’ve been unbelievable,” the Englishman went on to say,” he said according to Soccer Laduma. 

“Jose Mourinho sent a text, saying that this was a performance that you and the boys should be proud of, Arsene Wenger sends me a text saying that this is a non-African performance and he wasn’t being derogatory,” he added.
