Who Stuart Baxter ropes in at Bafana Bafana to help him isn’t important. As long as we get the results we want it’s fine. We don’t want to choose for him and then have him putting all the blame on us when he’s failing. pic.twitter.com/qZUQBd2Zdg

Why do we always have to be negative ? ??? Hands off Stuart Baxter , let the man do his job and deliver results. Who will ever be the perfect person for the Bafana job if all we go is criticize?
