Broos Shocked By Pirates Treatment
Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos has revealed he was shocked by the treatment he received by Orlando Pirates recently.
The 69-year-old and his assistants wanted to watch the game between Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns live inside Orlando Stadium on Saturday but he wasn’t allowed to enter.
Broos confirmed during the announcement of his latest squad that he wasn’t allowed to enter the stadium despite having an accreditation.
“I have to mention I am also, I’m really upset. We would have liked to see the game between Pirates and Sundowns, but they did not allow us to go in the stadium,” Broos said on SABC Sport during his squad announcement.
“We couldn’t enter at 3pm, we were not allowed to enter the stadium and we had an accreditation of the league. They said ‘no this is not enough. When I let you in, I lose my job’.
“I don’t understand that. We are coaches of the national team, and there is a team (Pirates) who don’t allow us into the stadium to see a game of their team.
“Most surprising is that the chairman of the team (Irvin Khoza) is the vice-president of SAFA. I didn’t believe it, so we have to go back.
“My assistant was there, so I phoned him and said ‘come with us and come and see the game, SuperSport’. It is unacceptable, really unacceptable.”
