Broos calls on Mokwena to phone him if he has any issues with him.

Bafana coach Hugo Broos has explained he was surprised to hear the criticism of the national setup from Mamelodi Sundowns’ co-head coach Rhulani Mokwena. The log leaders' coach had another go at Bafana and the communication between the national team and the clubs after Mamelodi Sundowns had certain problems when their players returned with injuries or fatigued from national duty.

The undefeated Hugo Broos, though, has now expressed his disgust with Mokwena’s comments in the media and explained that he will contact the Mamelodi Sundowns coach concern this issue.

“I will not comment about the remarks by Mr Mokwena, I am very surprised by his comments, you don’t do that in the media, certainly when it comes to a colleague,”

“Mr Mokwena will receive my answer in the coming days.” - explained Hugo Broos.

When he was asked to clarify some of his feelings, the tactician explained that Rhulani Mokwena should have rather called him in person instead of criticising the Bafana setup in public.

“If Mr Mokwena is frustrated, he can take the phone and make a call and ask for some explanations, but you don’t do it via the media. This is not appropriate I think when you are colleagues."

“If there is something that bothers him, please phone me and I will explain to him what happens."

“I am really surprised that he said he was not informed about the injury of (Mothobi) Mvala. We sent the whole medical file to the head of medical stuff at Mamelodi Sundowns, so he knows everything.” - Hugo Broos

The clash between Rhulani Mokwena and Hugo Broos is the latest in a seemingly growing list after the Sundowns’ coaches first questioned why some of their players were not called up into the national squad before Hugo Broos was upset with the club for scheduling Thabiso Kutumela’s vaccination during an international week.

Bafana will return during the next international break in November as they are scheduled to face Zimbabwe and Ghana in their final two Group G qualifiers.
