In fact, Bafana have been defeated 2-1 at the hands of rivals Nigeria’s Super Eagles in their AFCON quarter final match at Cairo International Stadium on Wednesday, 10 July to bring Bafana run in the tournament to a disappointing end.
Baxter has declared that unless the authorities meet his demands and put certain things in place, he will leave the team.
He told journalists: "We have got a new squad because it has been long that South Africa got to this stage.
"We have got to say that we played against some of the best teams on the continent: Morocco, Ivory Coast, Egypt and Nigeria and we did well in those games.
Baxter added: "We beat the host nation and I think that my players have shown that they belong here. We are definitely on the right part with our rebuilding process.
“I think it must be a decision between me and the South Africa Football Federation. There are a few things we need to discuss. I wasn’t 100 per cent pleased with our performance in the first half but in the second half, we came back into the game.
“We played better on the ball without creating those big chances. Looking at the whole game today we played against a very good team and a well-organized side.
“Even after the conceded the equalising goal they were still able to pick us on the counter-attack. They were very good racing forward.
“We did okay to curtail them with the way we played. It would be difficult to maintain the same consistency against Egypt and then against Nigeria three or four days later at the same competition,”
