Angry Hugo Broos fires back at Mamelodi Sundowns coach!
Hugo Broos and Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rhulani Mokwena's war of words continue! Take a look at the latest comments made below
Bafana Bafana head coach Hugo Broos has lashed out at Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rhulani Mokwena for recent remarks he made concerning the way the national team is being run.
Mokwena was left rather irritated with the fact that Hugo Broos originally called Mamelodi Sundowns out for scheduling Thabiso Kutumela’s COVID-19 vaccine during an international week.
According to Mokwena, the Bafana Bafana coach is overworking players and the SAFA medical staff are failing in their duty to inform clubs on injuries picked up with the national team.
Hugo Broos fires back at the Mamelodi Sundowns mentor
“I will not comment about the remarks by Mr Rhulani Mokwena, I’m very surprised by his comments, you don’t do that in the media, certainly when it comes to a colleague,” Hugo Broos told the ‘PSLNow’ television show.
“Again, if Mr Mokwena is frustrated, he can take the phone and call me and ask 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’m really surprised that he said he wasn’t 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.”
What Rhulani Mokwena said regarding Hugo Broos’ Bafana Bafana?
“It’s a very, very difficult situation with Bafana. We can’t even communicate with the medical department. We don’t know the itinerary of Bafana, we don’t know the training programme of Bafana.” Rhulani Mokwena told members of the media as quoted by Kick-off.
“We don’t get training feedback in relation to the load, there’s no data. So the cooperation with Bafana frustrates us a little bit. Because as Mamelodi Sundowns we are the first to always over the years shown willingness to support the nation.
“To support the cause and release as many personnel including support structures from Sundowns going to represent Bafana Bafana. In relation to the country’s cause, Mamelodi Sundowns has always put Bafana in certain moments in fact ahead of its own cause,”
