Big loss or welcome farewell? Mzansi weighs in on Stuart Baxter resignation
Stuart Baxter's name is topping trends lists in SA after he announced his resignation as Bafana Bafana coach on Friday.
The move has sparked questions about the future of the team, as well as what Baxter's next move will be.

Here's a snapshot of the reactions.

Since Stuart Baxter resigned. The ONLY coaches who can take us forward are Benni McCarthy or Dan Malesela and Rhulani as an assistant. Our Football is all about Skill and flare, something we hardly saw with Stuart Baxter. ???— Sir Astro® (@SirFankie__) August 2, 2019
