Former PSL Coach of the Year Hunt, who has also been linked with the job, wished Baxter all the best as the new coach of the national team.
‘‘They (Safa) can’t call me can they? They’ve got Baxter already haven’t they?” Hunt said on The Sowetan.
‘‘They have made their decision. They have tried to get three or four coaches and they didn’t get them," he added.
‘‘So they (Safa) are taking Stuart and I wish him well and good luck‚” Hunt continued.
‘‘Obviously they (Supersport United) have made a comment and they have come out and they have said what they have said,” he concluded.
Baxter is expected to leave SuperSport at the end of the current 2016/17 campaign if he is appointed Bafana coach.
