Indomitable Lions' head coach mulls over quitting

The head coach of the Indomitable Lions, Hugo Broos has said he is seriously considering quitting the 2017 African champions side over what he describes as “the unprofessional attitude” of football authorities in Cameroon.

Speaking during a post-match press conference after the Guinea-Cameroon friendly in Belgium on Tuesday, Hugo Broos said he has not been working under appropriate conditions.

“The team is working well but the officials [of the federation] who have to organise some things are not available. Today we did not receive our meal because the hotel was not paid. We deserve respect. So, I have to think about my future with Cameroon,” Hugo Broos told the radio sports service of the Cameroon Radio Television (Crtv).

The Belgian football tactician disclosed that some staff who helped the team win the 2017 Africa Cup of nations have not been paid.

Though Hugo Broos did not mention names or the amount Cameroon owes the staff, Pan African Magazine, Jeune Afrique recently reported that the coach who earns a monthly salary of FCFA 29 million ($48,000) hasn’t been paid for seven months.

Cameroon went down 2-1 to the Syli Nationale of Guinea in an international at Edmond Manchtens Stadium in Brussels, Belgium on Tuesday.

The game was the second outing of the five times African champions since winning the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon last month.

The boys of Hugo Broos had defeated Tunisia 1-0 four days earlier in their pioneer outing since defeating Egypt in the final of the Gabon expedition.

Both matches are a build-up to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in June and four rounds of Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers between August and November.
