Following his team’s obliteration in the hands of the Super Eagles, the Indomitable Lions coach is not frightened about the prospect of being fired

In the wake of Cameroon’s embarrassing defeat to Nigeria, under-fire coach Hugo Broos remains bold, claiming he is not afraid of being kicked out.

Broos’ job is under extreme pressure after the Indomitable Lions suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat by the Duper Eagles in Caf World Cup qualifying on Friday.

It was the nation's worst loss in a World Cup qualifier encounter, and their chances of qualifying for Russia looks very slim.

But Broos, who has been at the helm since 2016 and led the Indomitable Lions to win the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, says that he does not fear losing his job,

“I am not afraid of that and I don’t think about that,” he said after the game.

“Football is the same for a coach. Today they hail you; tomorrow they kill you – so no big difference with me.

“So I am not afraid even if we don’t make it to the Fifa World Cup.”

The return leg against  Gernot Rohr’s men holds on Monday at the Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo, Yaoundé.
