Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter has not ruled out the possibility of joining the South African Football Association (Safa) as its technical director.

Speaking at a press conference at Chiefs headquarters today, Baxter would not confirm or deny that he was interested in the job.

He said nothing had been confirmed as yet.

“It is an interesting position but I respect my employer, Kaizer Chiefs, and at this moment in time I’m the Kaizer Chiefs coach.

“It’s an honour to be named in the short list for Bafana technical director, but now I’m a Chiefs coach,” he said.

Baxter, however, said things would be clearer in the next few days.

“I cannot lie and say it’s not interesting. The last time I was at Safa, things were not done properly but maybe they have changed now.”

Earlier this month Safa identified the former Bafana coach as the man to drive its technical master plan but Baxter denied ever being approached for the job.
