Cameroon names Belgian Hugo Broos as new coach

Cameroon

Cameroon’s Football Federation have appointed former Belgium international, Hugo Broos, as the Indomitable Lions’ new head coach.

The 63 year old takes over from Volker Finke who was shown the exit in October.

Alexandre Belinga, the team’s interim coach for the past three months, will remain as an assistant.

Broos won the Belgian Championship twice with Brugge in 1992 and 1996, and enjoyed spells in Greece, Turkey and Algeria.

His first task with Cameroon will be to keep them top of their 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying group M.

The Indomitable Lions return to action in a home and away fixture against South Africa next month.

He will also take charge of the team when they take on France in a friendly in May.
