Belgian tactician Hugo Broos says he has no idea if his contract will be extended by the Cameroonian football federation (FECAFOOT).

When speaking to BBC, Broos described his situation as "a soap", after leaked documents revealed the country's football authorities want him out.

The final decision rests with Cameroon's sports minister and Broos wants to know one way or the other by December 15th.

"I don't know now what will happen. I'm waiting now, this is something that is not serious, it's something to laugh [at], it's a soap, what happens now in Cameroon,” he said.

Broos, who guided Cameroon to the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) title in Gabon, says his contract, salary and expenses should all be resolved by 15 December, whether he remains in the role or not.

Cameroon had a disappointing 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign and they failed to book their place in the finals.

"What we did in Gabon was something unique. So if we now had to prepare for the Afcon 2019, there have to be some changes in the team - we have to look for other players, I have to look for better players,” he added.

Broos does not yet know whether he will have that responsibility, but if he remains in the job, he knows it will be tough.

"It's a very difficult situation, because they fired me - so if the minister decides tomorrow that he goes on with me as the coach, I will have to work with a board who is against me,” he concluded.
