Hugo Broos has been sacked as the coach of Cameroun,the normalisation committee that runs the Cameroun Football Federation (Fecafoot) announced on Monday.
BROOS, WHO has enjoyed a successful spell in charge of Indomitable Lions, having led the team to victory at the last Africa Cup of Nations, was fired following a meeting yesterday morning and his compensation package was what was being discussed.
The FECAFOOT [the Cameroun football federation] said it “took the decision due, among other things, to failure on the side of the coach to guide the team to 2018 World Cup and his involvement in the famous Brussels Scandal”.
He now leaves the lucrative job weeks after having been nominated for ‘CAF Coach of the Year’ award alongside Héctor Cúper, Hussein Amotta, Gemot Rohr and Mihayo Kazembe.
The 65-year-old has revealed before that he turned down several managerial jobs after his Africa Cup of Nations triumph, including an offer to coach the South Africa national team.
Apart from coaching Cameroun, Broos has vast experience as a manager, having won the Belgian Championship twice with Club Brugge and then again with Anderlecht.
He has also enjoyed spells in Greece, Turkey and Algeria in recent years.
