Hugo Broos, the man who led Cameroon to glory in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, has denied having an interview with the Ghana FA.
The Belgian was one of three men shortlisted for the Ghana coaching position, with the role ultimately given to Kwesi Appiah.
Broos has since denied applying for the role and having an interview with the Ghanaian football authorities.
« I would like to apologise for exaggeration. I have certainly humiliated the Cameroonian people, » Broos said at press conference on Tuesday, as quoted by GHANASoccernet.
« There is no reason for me to leave Cameroon. Forget about my departure or resignation, and don’t listen to rumours that I am in negotiations with other federations.
« The FA president and I had already discussed of a prolongation.”
Broos’ comments are seen as the coach attempting to save face with Cameroon, as an interview with Ghana would be a breach of contract.
The Belgian has reportedly considered walking away from the Indomitable Lions, but remains in charge as they approach their first 2019 AFCON qualifier in June.
