Broos made the comments during a press conference, in which he was supposed to provide a report back on the game against Morocco, Sowetan LIVE reported.

He mentioned that South Africans had to face the real problem, which was that the country didn’t have high-quality players like their last opponents, Morocco, France and Ghana. Broos added that the only reason Bafana were in the 2010 World Cup is that they were given the gift of hosting it.

South African Football Association President, Danny Jordaan, has said that he would talk to the coach about the statements he made. Jordaan added that he was not at the press conference himself, so he could not comment on the statements, but that it was important that the matter was dealt with organisationally.
