Cameroon coach Hugo Broos says he turned down Al Ahly's coaching job offer due to living conditions in Egypt.

The Belgian manager was speaking before the Indomitable Lions' participation at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia this weekend.

Broos said a number of managerial jobs opened up for him after his 2017 CAF Africa Cup of Nations triumph with Cameroon, including an offer from the Cairo giants.

The offers came after Broos led the Indomitable Lions to their fifth AFCON title in Gabon after a 2-1 win over seven-time winners Egypt in the final.

“After the African Cup, I recieved offers from Ghana, South Africa, and Tunisia, and I also went to Egyptian top club Al Ahly,” said Broo to KingFut.

“I did not see myself going, so I decided to make a decision on three criteria. The sporting prime, the financial offer, and the family aspect was important too.

“I did not feel like being a manager in Egypt, because the living situation there is not ideal.”

The African champions are set to open their FIFA Confederations Cup account against Chile on Sunday, June 18.
