Baxter is yet to finalise his backroom staff, but reports suggest that Fortune could be one of his assistants at Bafana Bafana

Former Manchester United midfielder Quinton Fortune is reportedly earmarked for a coaching role in Stuart Baxter's Bafana Bafana technical team.

According to The Times, Fortune is set to return to the South African senior national team as one of Baxter's assistant coaches. 

The publication reports that Baxter will retain the services of under-20 coach Thabo Senong for the foreseeable future. 

Senong and Molefi Ntseki worked alongside Baxter for the two international matches against Nigeria and Zambia, with Alex Heredia as the goalkeeper coach. 

However, should the 63-year-old mentor convince Fortune to join his backroom staff, then Ntseki would be expected to return to his current position as head coach of the SA U17 team.

Fortune, 40, is a qualified coach having completed his full coaching badges in 2012. 

He has not coached at the highest level, but he worked at Cardiff City as their head coach for the under-21 team. 

Fortune left the club in 2015, and he was replaced by Kevin Nicholson.
