“The level that the South African team will be when they come to play us next month depends on Stuart Baxter, because if he is going to have a different philosophy from the one the team are used to before he took over, they will have to go through a phase and they might not be in the same high level because they have been in transition for some time now.
Super Eagles Chief Coach Salisu Yusuf has posited that the South Africa’s Bafana Bafana might not be at their best when they face the Super Eagles in June next month.
Yusuf, who spoke in an exclusive interview with AOIfootball.com, said should their new coach, Stuart Baxter decide to change the philosophy of the team, it will affect their play as they would have to go the phase of adaptation.
He added that if Stuart Baxter works with the philosophy he met on ground, the team might be at the same high level when they visit the Nest of Champions on June 10, because most of the South Africa players are homegrown.
“But if Baxter decides to work with what they have on ground, probably they might still play in the same level because most of the players are homegrown, playing in their league.
“The most important thing for us in the Super Eagles is that we will not respect every team we are going to play, whether South Africa or Corsica, and we are going to give our hundred percent in each and every game,” concluded Yusuf.
