“I never said that I'm going to stop - I'm very happy in my job and as I said a few days ago, the guys give me a lot of satisfaction.”

The Bafana Bafana coach, Hugo Broos, has downplayed the idea that he will be quitting the national team and retire from coaching.

“I never said that I'm going to stop - I'm very happy in my job and as I said a few days ago, the guys give me a lot of satisfaction.

“I'm proud to be the coach of this team and the future will tell the rest.”
