The Tshwane side granted Safa permission to consult with their coach over the vacant head coach role

SuperSport United defender Michael Boxall is adamant reports linking coach Stuart Baxter to Bafana Bafana did not distract them to lose three successive matches in the league.

“I don’t think that affected us. I think if he goes at the end of the season it gives us more motivation to send him off with a bang,” Boxall told Goal.

The national association has dragged their feet in finding a new coach, and Baxter is waiting in the wings on the association’s decision.

“I don’t think that should distract us from our jobs. So, I don’t think there is any reason for us to get distracted but focus on our upcoming games,” Boxall said.

The New Zealander is keen to find the net when they travel to the FNB Stadium to take on Kaizer Chiefs in the Nedbank Cup quarterfinals on Saturday.

“There’s a lot of teams I haven’t scored against, but if I get one against Chiefs it will be a special honour because Chiefs obviously have a passionate fan base,” Boxall said.

The three-time PSL champions have found the going tough in the league in recent matches, losing their last three matches in a row. It’s something they’re eager to rectify in upcoming matches.

“We’re working hard at training and we got a lot of games coming up thick and fast to correct that, so that’s all we look to do,” Boxall said.
