Broos slams quality of SA football

Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos has slammed the quality of South African football, saying there are not enough 'high-quality' players in the country.

Broos was comparing the pool of South African talent compared to their last three opponents - Morocco, France and Ghana.

"It's time now to face the real problem. And what is the real problem of South Africa? It is that we don't have those high-quality players, like our last three opponents, Ghana, France and Morocco," he said

"When you see the players of Ghana, 90% of the players are European-based. France, I don't have to explain, all the players are playing in big European teams.

"But also, Morocco. When you see the selection of Morocco, there was only one player, the goalkeeper, who played in the CAF Champions League with Raja Casablanca, and the rest were European-based.

"We don't have those players: the quality that is playing in Europe. We can look at the quality at fantastic races that (Mamelodi) Sundowns and (Orlando) Pirates had in the Champions League and the Confederation Cup.

"But Sundowns lost in the quarter-final and Pirates in the final. But who won the competitions? Two Moroccan teams, Wydad Casablanca and RS Berkane.

"And I repeat, there were no players of those teams in the Atlas Lions' selection, except the goalkeeper Anas Zniti (Raja Casablanca).

"Again, let's face the problem of South Africa. The problem is, the level of our PSL is not high enough. We don't make players with high quality."
