CAPE TOWN – Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter has called up his son Lee to serve as a stand-in goalkeeper coach for Saturday’s African Cup of Nations qualifier against Libya in Durban.
Lee Baxter is currently the goalkeeper coach at Kaizer Chiefs, having joined the Amakhosi in February this year.
So his familiarity with Bafana No 1 Itumeleng Khune should ensure continuity for Saturday’s game.
The 42-year-old Swede was a goalkeeper himself, having played for a number of clubs in his home country, as well as Rangers in Scotland and Sheffield United in England.
Lee Baxter comes in for Andre Arendse, who is unavailable due to family commitments, which was announced last week already.
