SAFA Comment On Baxter, Rulani & Broos Public Spat

SAFA has commented on calls for Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos to hash out his latest public spats with Premier Soccer League coaches.

Over the past two FIFA breaks, the Belgian mentor has clashed with Rulani Mokwena of Mamelodi Sundowns as well as Kaizer Chiefs’ Stuart Baxter over the lack of “data” on players reporting for national team duty.

Broos also insisted that Amakhosi star Njabulo Ngcobo is better suited as a defender rather than a midfielder, where Baxter has been deploying him.

The Chiefs coach was far from impressed.

Now that the next international break isn’t until March next year, will Broos make plans to sit with his DStv Premiership counterparts for a debrief?

“You’ve hijacked me with this question,” said SAFA CEO Tebogo Motlanthe when contacted by the Siya crew to find out if a meeting would be in the pipeline.

“But what I can confirm to you is that I will wait for the coach (Broos) to submit his programme and we can discuss this possibility. That’s all I can say for now.”

Motlanthe is well aware of the animosity that currently exists between the Bafana mentor and his PSL counterparts, with Orlando Pirates co-coach Mandla Ncikazi having also criticized Broos for his handling of striker Tshegofatso Mabasa.
