Former Bafana Bafana defender Andrew Rabutla says coach Stuart Baxter should be in charge of the national team until 2022.

There has been rumours that Baxter will be asked to vacate his position following Bafana’s exit from the Afcon.

Bafana crashed out of the tournament after losing 2-1 to Nigeria in the quarter-finals on Wednesday night.

Rabutla has urged the South African Football Association (Safa) and fans to be patient with Baxter.

“We have to give him a chance, he is a coach who knows his story he is still developing and we need to stop changing coaches let’s give this guy a chance until 2022,” Rabutla told LimSportsZone.

The poor performance by Bafana in the Afcon has led to some sections of the football fraternity to call for Baxter’s sacking.
