New Bafana coach Baxter signs five-year deal and outlines vision

"I'm very optimistic if we can pull together, but don't be too negative because it will affect everyone".

"I think he is okay and ideal for the Bafana Bafana job", said Motaung.

Noting that all the logistics have been put in place to ensure the Super Eagles come out victorious against South Africa, Ibitoye said the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has already dispatched letters of invitation to the players invited for the Corsica friendly. One ambition I have got‚ while I am national coach‚ is to try and unite the whole football family behind the development of the game in this country.

"Yes‚ I have got ambitions short term".

Nigeria will host South Africa in the opening game of the qualifiers on June 10. Because today football is not only about the coach but also the technical team.

And while he will continue with SuperSport until the end of the season‚ a compromise has been reached and the new Bafana coach will not travel with the club to Confederation of African Football matches in the coming weeks.

He added: "I'm really looking forward to this latest challenge".

Da Gama then acted as Bafana caretaker coach prior to Baxter's appointment earlier this month.

Baxter will begin his second spell as Bafana coach after the final league fixtures on May 27. I've been reading about them and I know they've been in France for a camp.

This came following a frustrating period of endless searching, since the sacking of Shakes Mashaba in November previous year, by the South African Football Associations (SAFA).

Mashaba was reluctant to visit the overseas-based players and often clashed with Jordaan over the issue.
