Stuart Baxter who is the coach of South Africa’s Bafana Bafana, has claimed that his team is better than World Cup bound Nigeria and Senegal.
Baxter has made the claim while talking to reporters after his team suffered a 2-0 deficit in the hands of Senegal, which ended their World Cup hopes.
He said: “My mandate was never about ‘qualify for the world cup or you go home’, I wanna make sure that we’re making progress. I’ve seen some of the performances that we need to move more quickly.
“We need to make progress. We need to have everyone’s backing in the country, including SAFA and that’s the only way we’ll get better”, he said shortly after their loss to Senegal.
“Maybe I’m blue-eyed but I don’t think this team [Senegal] or Nigeria are better than us. They may have the big names but with the right sort of application we can certainly move forward.”
