Broos appreciates the quality of life in South Africa, describing it as “10 times better than Cameroon.” He enjoys the freedom to live a similar lifestyle to what he had in Belgium.

Living in Sandton, a suburb of Johannesburg, allows him to go out, do groceries, and dine at restaurants without feeling restricted. He emphasizes that despite the safety concerns in Johannesburg, he feels comfortable in his surroundings.

When it comes to South African cuisine, Broos has developed a taste for certain dishes. He enjoys chicken plates with vegetables but admits that he is not a fan of pap, a traditional maize porridge. He finds it lacking in taste and prefers other South African dishes like chakalaka, a spicy relish.

One of the few activities that Broos refrains from engaging in is cycling. While he is an avid cyclist in Belgium, he considers the traffic in South Africa, particularly in Johannesburg, to be too dangerous for cycling. He recounts a couple of close encounters with reckless drivers and expresses his concern for pedestrian safety.

Despite these minor reservations, Broos remains content with his life in South Africa. He appreciates the music, culture, and overall quality of life in the country. However, he plans to spend less time in South Africa in the future to be closer to his family.

Broos looks forward to his two-week break in Belgium, where he will reunite with his grandchildren before returning to South Africa to continue his coaching duties with Bafana Bafana.
