Hugo Broos replaces Volker Finke as the head coach of Cameroon
Volker Finke was in charge of the Cameroon national football team for around 2 years but after the recent underwhelming results that the national side has been sustaining, Finke was sacked and replaced by Hugo Broos.
Cameroon failed to make it past the group stages of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations and this was a big blow for the national side as they have a history of consistently reaching the advances rounds of this competition but this time around was another story and this was one of the bigger reasons of why Volker Finke was replaced by the Belgian manager Hugo Broos who has a huge mountain to climb as it will be his first time taking charge of a national team.
"I will never accept intrusion in my job as a coach. I am the coach and I take the decisions. It is the first time I will be training a national team and there is always a beginning but I hope for good results and I am not afraid to take the post.’’
"I have always been passionate about African football and Cameroon has a rich football history having participated at World Cups and won the Africa Cup of Nations. They have good players and this, coupled with the prospect of qualifying for and playing in two big competitions, was a big attraction." Hugo Broos said during his first initial unveiling.
One of the first tasks that Hugo Broos has to undertake is to prepare his new team for the upcoming 2017 Nations qualifier of Cameroon where they will be facing off with South Africa on March 26.
Alexandre Belinga was the interim coach of the Cameroon national team who had to take charge of the national team for some time before Hugo Broos was officially named as the new permanent coach and Belinga will play a big role in shaping up the national team and helping out Hugo Broos.
