Ten months ago, he was the hero everyone wanted to manage their team after he won the prestigious African Nations Cup against all odds.

However, all that is history as the Cameroonian Football Federation (FECAFOOT) have announced the sack of Hugo Broos.

In a statement, FECAFOOT said they dismissed the Belgian-born technician for several reasons which included: failure to qualify for next summer's World Cup in Russia and also his refusal to take up residence in Cameroon.

It also noted Broos' inability to convince "several important players" not to reject their call-up to the national team, such as Liverpool's Joel Matip before the African Nations Cup.

Broos, whose contract with FECAFOOT ran until February 2018, remains in the running for the CAF African Coach of the Year award alongside Super Eagles coach, Genort Rohr.

The 65-year old had been hoping for a contract extension to take Cameroon to the next Nations Cup in 2019, which the country is scheduled to host.
