SAFA insider backs Broos over poor PSL standard comments

Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos said on Tuesday at SAFA House that the standard of the PSL is not at the required level.

The comments have caused somewhat of an uproar in SA football circles with various individuals like, Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Steve Komphela and former Bafana international Matthew Booth, knocking the Bafana coach for his negative comments over the state of South African football.

But a South African Football Association (SAFA) insider tells KickOff.com, that Broos is 100% correct in his analysis of the situation.

"Unfortunately he is 100% correct," the SAFA insider tells KickOff.com.

"Yes, absolutely the PSL's standard is not good enough compared to the national team players who ply their trade in Europe.

"More players need to play in Europe. There is no room for growth in the PSL for players.

"Clubs need to have only a certain number of players on their books," the SAFA insider said.

"Look at Teboho Mokoena, a top talent, but he is not playing, so how can he be selected for Bafana?

"Top players these days sit in the stands.

"Broos is the only one who is willing to say it like it is.

"He needs cooperation from the PSL and the coaches. That's what he is saying.

"Broos asked a few times to meet with PSL coaches, but he's been ignored.

"The PSL is able to assist the national team needs an effort from everyone, not just the Bafana head coach.

"All coaches in the country need to work together to resolve the crisis."
