With the 2019 Afcon tournament fast-approaching, there has been a lot of debate on who Bafana Bafana head coach Stuart Baxter should call upon to be part of the technical team heading to the tournament which will be held in Egypt next month.

Former Bafana skipper Lucas Radebe has voiced his opinion on the issue. The 50-year old believes it will be best for the Bafana head coach to have players who were part of the 1996 Afcon winning squad.

Radebe believes a former Bafana player like Doctor Khumalo could be very handy for Baxter and his charges in Egypt.

“There are lots of former players who want to serve, not really be involved in any structure, but to be with the national team. We have Andre Arendse at the moment, who is a goalkeeper coach. But we need more faces to be involved. People like Doctor Khumalo…it will be great to have some of the guys from the 1996 squad,” said Radebe.

“I think those name will help, not just in terms of being there, but in terms of helping to build the morale of the team.”

Already, Baxter has revealed that he is keen to have former Bafana player Mar Fish as part of his technical team after another former Bafana player Quinton Fortune said he is not available.
