Cameroon’s Africa Cup of Nations-winning coach, Hugo Broos may well be on his way away from the West African country.
Doubts came over his continued stay with the AFCON winners after South Africa came knocking on Broos’ door with the vacant job of the Bafana Bafana.
Though it is still early days, Broos has dropped hints he might be interested in taking the Bafana Bafana role.
Ligi Star Management, Broos’ management team said: “He’s [Broos] 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.”
Regarding his current job at the Central African giants, Ligi Star explains that Broos is content with his achievement of lifting the continental crown, and would prefer a new challenge elsewhere rather than regressing in future.
“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.
“Nothing is decided yet but if he says he wants a new challenge it means a lot and to be honest, personally, the living conditions in South Africa are maybe a little better than in Cameroon.”
