Hugo Broos, the head coach of Cameroun’s national football team has reportedly refused to renew his contract with the Indomitable Lions. The Belgian technician who is very much in demand since winning the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon has signaled interest in both the Bafana Bafana job while maintaining that his heart is still with the Lions.
An emergency meeting grouping Blaise Moussa and Tombi A Roko, general secretary and president of the Cameroonian Football Federation and Hugo Broos held in the Ministry of Sports on Tuesday 4 April 2017. The meeting that was chaired by Physical Education Minister, Pierre Ismaël Bidoung Kpwatt, discussed the scandal of unpaid invoices registered in the lair of the indomitable Lions at the recent internship blocked in Brussels in Belgium.
On the night of Tuesday, March 28, 2017, after the friendly against Guinea, Hugo Broos said he was seriously thinking about his future. The next day, he had a one-on-one with Tombi A Roko, the president of the Cameroon Football Federation. President Tombi proposed to Hugo Broos an extension of his contract for at least a year. The FECAFOOT boss whose presidency is still being contested also informed Broos of the possibility of a salary increment.
Hugo Broos said he could not renew his contract in the current context. He appealed to the Cameroonian football boss that the debate on the subject be postponed. Our chief football correspondent hinted that there is a good chance that he will go. The Belgian has however expressed his desire publicly to stay with the Lions.
