Stuart Baxter’s choice of words when defending the appointment of his son Lee as Bafana Bafana’s interim coach have not gone down well with Wendell Robinson.

The Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper coach believes it was unfair of Baxter to claim Lee is the most qualified goalkeeper coach in the country.

Robinson said Safa should have corrected Baxter since there are other qualified coaches in the country.

“Safa trains goalkeeper coaches in the country, they should have corrected Baxter,” Robinson was quoted as saying by Isolezwe.

“They should have protected local coaches, they should have told him that what he was saying was incorrect.”
