Touching on the allegations that he arrived drunk at a practice not long ago, he said to the Sunday World:

“We have to improve, there are a lot of things that are still not professional – I was frustrated when I heard that a player like Andile Jali, who has to show the young players what and how to do things, was alleged to have arrived at the club training session drunk – come on.”

Despite loud calls for Jali to be selected for the national team on the back of his performances in the 2021/22 Premier Soccer League season, Broos was resolute in his refusal to heed them. His unrestrained utterances appear to have closed the door once and for all on any chances of Jali playing for South Africa while Broos is still boss.

Broos lays into Chiefs and Pirates

It is no secret that Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates are mediocre outfits at the moment.

This is as Mamelodi Sundowns tightens its stranglehold on football in South Africa.

Bafana Bafana coach, Hugo Broos has expressed his annoyance with the Soweto giants for their slide into near irrelevance, suggesting that it was undermining the national team's ambition to return to the top.

Why Mudau slapped Motlohi

It remains the slap that was heard around South Africa and its impact still reverberates today.

Mamelodi Sundowns legend Daniel 'Mambush' Mudau assaulted teammate Charles Motlohi following another crushing final defeat to Kaizer Chiefs, this time in the 2001 BP Top Eight decider.

Former footballer Sipho Nunens has revealed what truly happened on that infamous day, according to The Citizen.
