Brockie: It would be devastating to see Baxter leave

Cape Town - SuperSport United striker Jeremy Brockie admits it would be a massive blow if head coach Stuart Baxter left the club to take on the Bafana Bafana job.

Baxter is among several candidates strongly linked with the vacant head coach position in the South African national team.

The former Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs tactician arrived at SuperSport at the start of 2016 and led the club to glory in last season's Nedbank Cup final.

This season the Tshwane side were beaten finalists in the Telkom Knockout while they are currently only two points off the top of the league table and have a very realistic chance of winning the championship.

As such, Baxter's potential departure for the national team would be very bad timing for Matsatsantsa.

"I have been reading a lot about it as well and it would actually be devastating if we were to lose him at SuperSport," Brockie told goal.com website.

"Obviously the Bafana job is pretty exciting for him too, but personally, I hope we can keep him here at SuperSport and the club do all it can to keep him because he is a big influencer and man-manager off the field.

“He is always talking and looking to improve the team by bringing more confidence to the squad. Like I said, it would be devastating for us if the rumours are true, but we will have to wait on that one,” added the 29-year-old New Zealand marksman.
