Zuma: There's A Way You Talk To Africans

Bafana Bafana legend Sibusiso Zuma has weighed in on what seems to be a strained relationship between PSL coaches and national team coach, Hugo Broos.

Rhee, who spent almost a decade in Europe, says foreign coaches don't nurse egos, they tell it like it is. 

"There's a way you talk to South Africans and Africans generally. When Hugo Broos talks, I understand it at a level of football as player. I know how this people talk, in Europe we call it change room hard knock," Zuma told the Siya crew.  

"In Europe the coaches goes in hard in the dressing rooms. Football is very competitive and coaches want to make sure you understand them quickly."  

However Zuma feels Broos needs to change his way of communication especially with coaches, who are core of Bafana Bafana because of their role in dealing with players on a daily basis.

"Of course Broos must tone it down when he speaks about coaches and teams but as players, we can take it. In the change rooms, coaches will tell you something you don't want to hear and it helps you. I've seen it and here in this country we take it too personally.

"With that said, South African coaches have done extremely well. They deserve respect and Broos must also understand that these coaches prepare him for Bafana Bafana players."
