Cameroon Football Association Surprised by Sports Ministry’s Choice of New Team Coach

Rigobert Song was the coach of Cameroon’s national football team until his contract expired after the Africa Cup of Nations, but he led them to the round of 16 in the tournament earlier this year. Now, Marc Brys has been appointed as the new coach of the national team, replacing Song. The federation expressed its astonishment at this decision, stating that it was made unilaterally and against the terms of Decree No. 2014/384 regarding the organization of national football teams.

The federation is now trying to investigate the situation and is working to resolve this issue. They are in contact with FIFA to address the matter concerning Brys’ appointment without their knowledge. The federation expressed disappointment at the lack of consultation in the decision-making process and emphasized the importance of abiding by regulations governing national football teams.
