Broos told the truth!

Menzi Magubane

Extra-Time: Menzi Magubane insists that Hugo Broos should not have apologised for telling the truth about the dire state of South African football.

The standard of South African football is slowly deteriorating and nothing is being done to fix it.

Whoever forced Broos to apologise was wrong. The Belgian came to South Africa to rebuild the national team, which has become a laughing stock around the continent.

The league is failing Bafana and the sooner club bosses start to invest more into development, the sooner the situation will improve.

Broos needs to be given time because he is on the right track. His remarks may offend people but the truth needs to be told.

His bosses at the South African Football Association (Safa) need to make sure that he gets his previously requested meeting with club coaches.

When Broos took over the national team last April he asked the clubs to allow him to have a meeting with club coaches but that never happened.

Perhaps Safa president Danny Jordaan will need to intervene and force the coaches to give the Belgian a chance and listen to what he has to say.

All Broos needs is to be given all the resources he is seeking.

South African football supporters, coaches and club bosses will need to accept the fact that our football is not the same as it was before. People like Broos are here to revamp our fading league.
