New Bafana Coach Arrives In SA

New Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos has arrived in South Africa on Monday evening.

The 69-year-old was unveiled as new South Africa coach via a Zoom meeting last week after agreeing to a five-year deal.

Broos, who won the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations with Cameroon and was last working for KV Oostende, has since revealed that he wants to revamp the national side.

He arrived in the country on Monday evening and was welcomed by SAFA president Danny Jordaan as well as eputy chair of SAFA Technical Committee Bhudha Mathathe.

The Belgian tactician will be joined by a local coach as his assistant and said on television on Tuesday morning that he wants to scout as many DStv Premiership games as possible.

This publication understands that Broos is also expected to be involved with the SA U23 side around their preparations for the Tokyo Olympics.

Broos will have more time to prepare for his first game in charge after the qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup were moved from June to September. 

He will sit for the first time on the bench for Bafana during the COSAFA Cup in July before he joins the Olympic team in Japan, iDiski Times understands.
