SPORTS: Hugo Broos set to dump Cameroon, submits CV to South Africa FA
Africa Cup of Nations 2017 winning coach, Hugo Broos may dump the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon after submitting his CV to the South Africa Football Association.
Broos against all odds led Cameroon to a fifth AFCON win in Gabon. But his agent Gino Laureyssen of Ligi Star Management has revealed Broos’ resume has been submitted to
SAFA. “I asked him [Broos] if he wants to be a candidate for SAFA because they are looking for a head coach,” Laureyssen told KickOff. “So this week we have sent his CV to the CEO of SAFA, but until now we didn’t get any answer, which I think is a little [unusual].
“He’s very interested in working with a young group and I think the South African national team hasn’t done well in recent years, and if you see how he did with Cameroon, with not only stars but players who want to fight and work hard, I think that [his interest] is a good sign.”
Laureyssen said Broos is content with his achievement of lifting the continental crown with Cameroon and would prefer a new challenge elsewhere. “Look, if he has won the African Cup of Nations and is a hero in that country, I think he’s very smart [to know] that it can only go backwards [from here on out],” he added. “I mean, he has reached the maximum possible with that team, in that tournament, so I think now the challenge is to look for a new project where he can see what he can do – if he can maybe go to the  World Cup or the next Nations Cup.
