- The coach of the Indomitable Lions thinks it will be difficult for him to renew his contract. But Hugo Broos does not exclude anything.
The contract of Hugo Broos at the head of the Indomitable Lions ends in February. With less than a month of the term, it is difficult to know if the Belgian who led Cameroon to the 5th title of champion of Africa in February 2017, will be renewed or not.
The FECAFOOT Normalization Committee has already told the former JS Kabylie coach that they will not renew his contract. Signed in February 2016. In particular, Broos is accused of Cameroon’s non-qualification at the 2018 World Cup, the poor performance at the 2017 Confederations Cup, his inability to create harmony in the den and his declarations that sometimes “tarnished the image of Cameroon“.
This string of grievances is contained in a resolution taken by the Normalization Committee on 4 December 2017. An approach that is not clearly shared by the Ministry of Sports and Education (MINSEP), the other party to the contract of the Belgian technician. Guest on a television Show, Oumarou Tado, MINSEP Secretary General recently said that “the Hugo Broos file is not relevant”.
A situation that somewhat embarrasses the one who still remains the coach of the Indomitable Lions. “It’s a bit of a joke because you have the federation saying one thing and the ministry saying something else,” said Hugo Broos, guest of Talent d’Afrique on Canal+ yesterday 22 January 2018. “I want to continue, but it will be difficult,” he added.
