Following South Africa’s semifinal loss to Nigeria in the 2023 Afcon tournament, Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos has addressed speculation about his future with the team.

South Africa faced a tough defeat, losing 4-2 on penalties after a 1-1 draw at the end of extra time. Despite the disappointment, Broos remains committed to his role as head coach.

In a statement after the match, Broos clarified his stance, stating, “First of all, I never said that I should stop – I never said it. It was only when you talk about my age and then I think it’s normal that you think about ‘yeah, maybe it’s time that I’m going to stop’. But I never said that I was going to stop or that I stop.”

He emphasized his satisfaction with the team’s progress, stating, “I’m very happy in my job as I said a few days ago.
The guys give me a lot of satisfaction, a lot. I’m proud as a coach to be a coach of that team. So the rest the future will tell us.”

Broos’s declaration reaffirms his dedication to guiding Bafana Bafana forward, despite the setback in the tournament.
