Hugo Broos will be the next Tunisia head coach if reports coming out of that country are to be believed.

The Bafana boss is hot property after guiding an unfancied South African side to third place at the recently concluded Africa Cup of Nations.

Broos, who is busy preparing his team to take on Algeria in an international friendly on Tuesday evening, following their 1-1 draw with Andorra on Thursday, has also been linked to Egypt, Belgian team Club Brugge, as well as their upcoming opponents.

The former Cameroon AFCON winning coach is contracted to Bafana until 2026 and says he remains committed to helping his current team secure their place at the upcoming World Cup to be held in the United States, Mexico and Canada.

The head coach revealed last week, in the Citizen: “I already said after the AFCON, that if I make these performances with the team (Bafana made it to the semifinals and ended up getting the bronze medal in the Ivory Coast) there will automatically be interest in me as a coach. 

“There were rumours Algeria were interested, Tunisia, and other teams, also now it is Bruges. I did not see the people of Bruges, I only know I am one of the candidates.

“We will see what happens in the future, I have a contract with South Africa to 2026, so if there is a moment I want to leave South Africa I still have to negotiate with SAFA. For the moment it is just rumours.”
