The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has apologised to the South African Football Association (Safa) after Bafana Bafana head coach Hugo Broos was denied access to watch the Orlando Pirates match against Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday.

When Broos was announcing his final squad for the World Cup qualifiers on Monday, he revealed that he had been denied access to Orlando Stadium. The Belgian coach was with his assistant Cedomir Janevski when the incident occurred.
