Cameroon FA Sacks Indomitable Lions Coach
The head coach of Cameroon’s national senior football team, the Indomitable Lions, Volker Finke has been relieved of his duties and will no longer collaborate with the Cameroon Football Association, local media has reported.
The executive committee of the Cameroon Football Federation, Fecafoot, took the decision during an extraordinary meeting on Friday, October 30, in the capital, Yaoundé.
The German technician was fired with his assistant, former Ghanaian international, Ibrahim Tanko. The duo have managed the indomitable lions for more than two years, since they were hired in May 2013 and prior to their dismissal, they had recorded 12 wins, 9 draws and 7 defeats.
In a press statement, Fecafoot president Tombi à Roko Sidiki, confirmed their sacking.
“There is popular rejection of him and we also noticed that his play style had become stereotyped, lacking inspiration and his players play without any strategy to take us to victory,” it reads.
The football association has appointed Alexandre Belinga as interim coach of the team and former Cameroon international, Bonaventure Djonkep as assistant. Before his appointment, Mr Belinga was first deputy coach of the team. He has coached several teams in the local division one league, and played for the junior national squad.
