South Africa coach, Stuart Baxter on Friday announced his resignation, saying it’s time for someone else to lead the Bafana Bafana.
Baxter, 65, disclosed his decision to leave the job during a press conference in Johannesburg sports club.
“I’ve spent a lot of time reflecting on Afcon. “Going to AFCON, this squad had not lost in a year, something that was not easy considering we were introducing new players.
“I feel it’s time for someone else to take over and I have decided to resign from my position. It is my personal decision.
“I’ve chosen not to point fingers and I will refrain from that. Choosing not to answer some misleading media coverage is something that’s also hard to do.”
Baxter is the ninth coach to quit or be fired since the Cup of Nations ended on July 19 with Algeria defeating Senegal in the final.
He follows Clarence Seedorf (Cameroon), Javier Aguirre (Egypt), Paul Put (Guinea), Herve Renard (Morocco), Ricardo Mannetti (Namibia), Emanuel Amunike (Tanzania), Sebastien Desabre (Uganda) and Sunday Chidzambwa of Zimbabwe in either quitting, coming to the end of their contracts or being fired.
