Cameroon Fired Rigobert Song

Post by Kabalega »

Eto’o is not patient. :)
I thought he would stand by Rigobert like the Senegalese stood by their man, Aliou Cissé.

Song's reign ends on sour note

Rigobert Song represented Cameroon at eight Africa Cup of Nations tournaments, a joint record, winning two titles
Earlier in the week, Rigobert Song became the latest post-Afcon managerial casualty after the Cameroonian Football Federation (Fecafoot) decided not to renew his contract, ending a two-year spell in charge.

The former Liverpool and West Ham defender, who won 137 caps with Cameroon as a player, led the Indomitable Lions to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, where they beat Brazil but exited in the group stage.

But he could only guide the side to the last-16 at the recent Nations Cup, where they were beaten by Nigeria.
"Today the Executive Committee of the Cameroonian Football Federation notified the members of the Indomitable Lions staff of the end of their contract to manage Cameroon's senior men's national team," Fecafoot said in a statement., external.

"In the next few days, the details of the recruitment process for a new Indomitable Lions coaching staff will be announced."

It should have never been.
Eto'o's being advised to resign as well.

Song's results were really poor. 6 wins from 23 games. Cisse has a 70% winning record or close
