Broos has not picked any players from the two clubs for his squad for the upcoming AFCON qualifiers.

Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates need to fire
Broos was asked if he felt the club’s were working against him as national coach.
He would refute that notion but did insist that South Africa needs Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates firing.
“It is not working against me hey, not at all, if you have good players from one team it is not working against me but as I said already if you have so many players from the same team that means you don’t find the same quality somewhere else,” Broos told the media.
“That is not good for South African football, it’s not good when we don’t have more players from Chiefs and Pirates, top teams here in this country, it’s not good so let us hope in the future.

“Chiefs are struggling, okay a little but [are] better now, but they are still struggling to be like the Chiefs of before, Pirates, the same thing. They will have good results and then later it’s not good, so they are also not stable.”

Broos says that the widening gap between Sundowns and the chasing pack is bad news.
He said: “I was looking a little bit in the last five championships that Sundowns won before it was three, two points difference, now today it’s 20 and 17 and… this is not good, this is not good and let’s hope, as soon as possible, Chiefs and Pirates are the top teams fighting Sundowns for the [league title].
“What I feel… [Sundowns] have a plan, they have a plan, when you see the players coming to Sundowns, always the same types of players, they know what they want, they need a certain position and they look and say this guy, we need this quality and take him. So there is a plan and they have a good coach.
“I don’t know [if Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates have a plan], but do you think it’s normal that Chiefs and Pirates were always [fighting for the league], and that they are now 20 points off Sundowns? There is something wrong, I don’t know what.”
