Former Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter would welcome a return to the Premier Soccer League when football returns.

The 66-year-old well-travelled coach was last in charge of Bafana Bafana, from 2017 to 2019.

He has coached a number of nations and teams throughout the world that includes two spells with South Africa and time at Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United.

Currently out of work, and at home as he isolates as a result of the coronavirus, agent Steve Kapeluschnick said his client is open to a return.

He told the Daily Sun: "Baxter loves South Africa and that door remains open if the timing and project are right.

"He is at home but he has had some offers internationally.

"But because of the Coronavirus pandemic, like everyone else, he's home with his family and everything is on hold."

Baxter won eight of his 21 fixtures in charge with his final game during South Africa's quarter-final loss to Nigeria at the African Cup of Nations in Egypt last year.
