'No SAFA offer' for Baxter

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung insists they have not received any word from the South African Football Association over their proposed interest in naming Stuart Baxter as Bafana Bafana coach.

According to the Football411 website, the Englishman is thought to top of SAFA's wishlist as they search for a successor to Gordon Igesund, whose contract with the South Africa national team came to an end last month.

However, Amakhosi insist there has so far been no contact from SAFA regarding a potential deal for Baxter.

Motaung said: "The coach has told me and the chairman [Kaizer Motaung] that he has also been reading about the SAFA job in the papers. Nothing has changed. He is still our coach and we haven't had any formal approach from SAFA.

"I can't say what action we will take if it turns out the coach has been talking to SAFA. At the moment we are taking his word for it and can't assume anything else. We would prefer to deal with something that we know about, not hearsay."
