The tournament in Ivory Coast will kick off in January and end in February. Ahead of the competition, issues regarding bonuses and salaries have to be sorted out in advance.
Broos has admitted that these negotiations remain ongoing.
“I can’t deny it, there are problems at the moment,” Broos told SABC Sport.
“You know, it’s always the same when the big tournaments are there – there’s a discussion about bonuses and so on…it’s always a discussion.
“At the moment the discussions are not so positive for the players.
“But I know, with my experience, in the end there will always be an agreement. It’s not really motivating that we have this before our game tomorrow and the trip to Ivory Coast.
“I hope this will not affect the players’ performance.
“It happens everywhere, and certainly when big tournaments are coming.
“The players will be talking about bonuses. But maybe now the moment is not really right.
“I will try to talk to the players to put it out of their heads as well as next week.
“I have to be fair, that’s all, to see who is right and who is not. I am the guy in-between.
“It’s important for me ahead of the Afcon that these things are done. We will see in the next few weeks how things will go.” He spoke.
