Former Indomitable Lions of Cameroon coach Hugo Broos and his deputy Sven Vandenbroeck are in the news in Cameroon again.
The names of the men who masterminded Cameroon’s 2017 AFCON success has animated talks on social, since the evening of Wednesday, June 24 when Cameroonian website 45fois.com, published an article stating that the Belgians have had a favorable ruling in their legal battle against Cameroon football authorities.
The circulation of documents on the stating that coach Broos will be paid just over 114 Million FCFA and Sven Vandenbroeck over 33 Million FCFA amplify justified our colleagues research results and sent the Kick442.com team on a fact-finding mission.
Attempts to get comments from Broos who managed Cameroon between February 2016 to February 2018 was futile.
The gaffer actually reacted when he was contacted by the kick442.com team on Thursday, but all he said was; “I prefer not to comment on this issue.”
Knowing that Broos has always been a very frank gaffer, who says it as it is, we also opted to respect his opinion.
Sven Vandenbroeck on his part provided some important details.
The current Simba SC gaffer exclusively confirmed to this Pan-African Sports News Agency that they had won the legal battle against the Cameroon football authorities in a decision published on March 2, 2020. Unfortunately Sven further stated that he will make comments only when a condition is met.
“The decision has been taken. Yes it was a positive decision for me, and sure same for my colleague. Unfortunately, I am still waiting for the payment. I will only comment when everything has been arranged,” Sven Vandenbroeck, Cameroon’s fitness coach in the Broos era told kick442.com.
Both coaches are said to have dragged their former employers to court because of bonuses and salaries owed them in their time in service and after.
Though coach Sven says he has not been paid, a portion of a statement from the Cameroon football federation channel the responsibility of paying to the ministry responsible for such affairs.
“The State, which provided Hugo Broos’ salary, was contacted by FECAFOOT for the settlement of the claims. In mid-June, the claim was paid. Since then, the case is closed,” a portion of the FECAFOOT text reads.
Kick442.com has exclusively gathered from Sven that he has not been paid, while the Cameroon football federation understands the State has settled the issue. This plus coach Broos’ decision to opt for ‘no comment’ is an abundantly indicating that the battle could be experiencing uneasy calm.
We are on a mission for more information on this and will put it to our audience once we get that.
