Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter has confirmed that he is attempting to bring back former Manchester United midfielder Quinton Fortune to the technical team for the Africa Cup of Nations.
The 41-year-old Fortune, who earned 46 Bafana caps between 1996 and 2005, has been part of Baxter’s set-up in a temporary assistant coach role in recent years.
He has been previously involved with Bafana, including the World Cup qualifying campaign.
Fortune, who hails from Cape Town and played in the 1998 and 2002 World Cups, is also an ambassador for Manchester United, and has completed a number of coaching badges.
The Soccer Laduma website reported on Wednesday that Baxter wants Fortune to be a second assistant, with only SA Under-17 coach Molefi Ntseki helping the Bafana mentor at the moment.
