On Sunday, South Africans took to social media to share their thoughts on the Bafana Bafana head coach Stuart Baxter earning almost half a million rand a month.
Sunday Times reported Stuart Baxter earns R490 000 a month, instead of an alleged salary of R1 million a month.
According to the report, he earns much less than his predecessors, Ephraim ''Shakes" Mashaba and Pitso Mosimane.
However, although the report aimed at showing Baxter earns much less than expected, tweeps started to drag the SA national team’s head coach over his salary.
Vusi Sambo wrote, “Poor Stuart Baxter. Who could possibly survive on a paltry R490,000 /month salary? & with his Bafana Bafana team hardly ever winning, he is missing out on pocketing win bonuses. He must sue them for current & future losses (pun fully intended).”
Sambo is not the only one who believes Baxter is earning way more than he is worth- other social media users expressed their disbelief in his high salary despite him being unable to deliver any results.
Daddy Bino added, “We cant even qualify for Afcon and yet he earns so much.”
Briefly.co.za saw one tweep came up with a genius idea to ensure national coaches, of all sports, get a salary they deserve.
