Football: Cameroon parts ways with coach Rigobert Song

Paru le jeudi, 29 février 2024 14:02

The contract of  Rigobert Song, manager and coach of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, will not be renewed upon expiration today, February 29. He was informed by a letter from Minister of Sports and Physical Education Narcisse Mouelle Kombi that reads:  “The State, which pays your salary, cannot renew your contract as head coach of the Indomitable Lions senior men.”

Song, a former captain of the Indomitable Lions, was known to be on probation following Cameroon’s elimination in the eighth round of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) held in Côte d’Ivoire earlier this year. “We didn’t achieve our objectives, and our Executive Committee and I don’t see ourselves renewing the contract,” said Samuel Eto’o, President of the Cameroon Football Federation (Fecafoot), a co-signatory to Song’s contract.

Song, who was appointed in March 2022, led the Cameroon national team for nearly two years. During his tenure, the team played 23 matches, resulting in nine defeats, eight draws, and only six wins. Despite a victory over Brazil, the Indomitable Lions were eliminated in the first round of the 2022 World Cup. They also exited in the Round of 16 at CAN 2024, falling short of Fecafoot’s goal of winning the trophy.
