We have to trust youngsters – Hugo Broos
“The problem here in SA is that many teams have got an excessive number of players in their squads,” Bafana head coach Hugo Broos told members of the media.
“We have to give young players a chance to play and see what they are worth. It’s up to them; I will give them a chance to play. Maybe in a few months’ time we will be happy with [Evidence] Makgopa and [Bongokuhle] Hlongwane.
“When I go see [to watch] the games and see which players are on the bench, it’s young players who are on the bench. That means here in SA they choose more experienced players than giving chances to young players.
“They were complaining that I didn’t select [Njabulo] Ngcobo in my Bafana squad. The best defender of the season, best defender in the country and he’s not playing at his team? A young player, this is a problem. I think that if you have 30-to-40 players in your squad, that means about 20 players don’t play every week.”
