The former coach of the indomitable lions Hugo Broos, has made controversial comments on the return of some players in the lions’ den.

Speaking to sport/foot magazine, the Belgian said “without these so-called competent players, everyone gave in their best and we clinched the African Cup of Nations. Now that they are back, it will be a new uncertain adventure” Broos said.

“I can assure you with certainty that, it is not the coach that has decided to call back those players, the selection was influenced. Samuel Etoo enormously influenced the return of the other players to the national team.” The ex-Cameroonian head coach disclosed.

Hugo Broos, recently became the Sporting Director of a Belgian first division club, KV Ostende, after his separation with Cameroon.
