Broos issues apology for Bafana chaos

“When you see the game, it was clear that we were the better team. It was clear that we had many chances.” Broos said as quoted by FarPost.

“But it was also clear that we missed a lot of chances that, in the last half an hour. Bafana lost control over the game because Liberia was more powerful than we were.

“And then yeah, in the 91st minute or 92nd minute, you get a goal where you lose the victory. And that made a lot of emotions with me.

“And I left at 2-2 and went immediately to the dressing room. I did not fulfil my media obligations, and I want to apologise.

“But I am human, and the emotions took control yesterday over me. I know from experience that it is better not to say anything in the heat of the moment.

“And that’s what I did. It was not right, but people can understand in such circumstances that you are taking that decision.”
