Bafana Bafana Players Made To Sign Code Of Conduct

South Africa national team players have been made to sign a code of conduct to prevent them from partying that marred their last match in Durban against Cape Verde.

Head Coach Stuart Baxter welcomed the situation has welcomed the move but warned on misreporting and make up stories that are not correct.

-When we are professional athletes representing our country we don’t do that. It will be dealt with in house. What does not help are people making up stories that are… hugely inflated and missing the mark completely, Baxter told BBC.

The squad also watched a presentation on professionalism as Baxter also partly defended his players despite the antics being criticised by disappointed fans.

-I am pretty sure that over the last 50 years people have looked with admiration at boys taking a drink or ‘boys being boys. It reminds people that we are 24-hour professionals nowadays, he added.

Back-to-back defeats by Cape Verde last month – plus Fifa ordering a replay of last November’s match against Senegal because of match fixing – has left South Africa at the bottom of Group D with just a single point.
