So, Bafana Bafana fans are used to expecting the appointment of the current SuperSport United coach.
It's just that they were hoping for someone better when Safa were stalling on negotiations. No, it will be Baxter for sure.
Still, there's a number of fans (not supporters) who are disappointed but at least found creative ways to poke fun at Safa.
Here's our compilation of Twitter reaction from fans to the South African media. Even Ajax Cape Town joined in.
"Hi, can I speak to Stuart Baxter please, in his capacity as the NOW former SuperSport United Coach??"

My only problem with Stuart Baxter is that he doesn't stay at 1 club for more than 3 years & let's face it, we aren't a patient nation too. pic.twitter.com/xUxMLa8DJt — Tiyani wa ka Mabasa (@TTM16) May 5, 2017
