Broos Responds To Club Brugge Rumours

Bafana Bafana head coach Hugo Broos has once again brushed off rumours, linking him with the Club Brugge Technical Director role.

At the end of last month, Broos’ name was linked to his former club which is looking at restructuring their technical staff.

But Broos has said there has no been official contact, and after Bafana’s good performance at the Africa Cup of Nations, there was always bound to be speculation, and he had heard his name linked to a number of teams.

“So first of all, about Brugge, I only know that I’m a candidate there and, and there is nothing more or nothing less than that,” Broos told local media during a Zoom press conference from Algeria. 

“So I know that in the Belgian media, they spoke about it. But again, there is nothing for the moment, nothing at all. 

“And I said already, after AFCON, and if you do such performances with the team, then automatically there is interest in you as a coach, and I heard the rumours that Algeria was interested, that Tunisia was interested, and some other teams, also Brugge now. 

“But again, there are no negotiations, I didn’t saw the people of Brugge, I know only that I’m on the list, I’m one of the candidates. So let’s see what happens in the future. 

“And what I always answered on that question, I have a contract till 2026 with South Africa. So if there will be a moment that maybe I can leave or want to leave South Africa, then I still have to negotiate with people of SAFA. So for the moment it’s just rumours and nothing more.” 

Broos and Bafana will take on Andorra in their first of two friendlies in Algeria this week, the other being a clash with the hosts in five days.
