PSL Respond To Broos Being Denied Entry For Bucs v Downs

The Premier Soccer League has responded to the news that Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos was denied access to Orlando Stadium to watch Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns.

It was revealed that the national team coach was not allowed to enter the stadium for Saturday's encounter, after the league failed to inform the Buccaneers about Broos' attendance.

The PSL have now apologised to the Belgian coach for the mix-up despite a plan being put in place to allow the Bafana coach to attend matches.

Statement:

The Premier Soccer League today learned of an unfortunate incident in which the South African senior national team head coach was denied access to the DStv Premiership match between Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday, 25 September 2021.

The incident is highly regrettable, and the League has apologised unreservedly to the South African Football Association for the unfortunate occurrence.

The PSL immediately investigated the matter and established that the confusion was caused by the League’s failure to inform the host club about the head coach’s attendance as per protocol.

Over the past two months, an arrangement has been in place between the League and SAFA to allow the head coach to attend matches whenever he needs to, while continuing to ensure compliance. The arrangement has functioned well until thus far.

On this occasion, the League regrettably erred, and will ensure that this does not occur again.

Have a look at some of the Bafana coaches since 1992...
