Broos Explains Links & Tau Subs
Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos has explained why he substituted Gift Links at half-time and Percy Tau in the second half.
Broos selected an attacking line-up against Zimbabwe but his side was not able to break down the Warriors defence.
He substituted Links at half-time already, while Tau was taken off after 78 minutes.
“Gift Links was not really in the game first half, that’s why we changed him on the half and Percy, I think you saw in the game, Percy is not for the moment in his best shape, this is normal,” Broos told media after the match.
“We see that he missed the tempo of the game. So this is something also for him in the next weeks to work on.
“But again, he stays a good player and that’s why he stayed so long on the pitch.
“I hope that for the next games in October and November, that we’ll have a Percy Tau much better than for the moment.”
