The crisis in the Cameroonian football is far from knowing a happy ending. Two opposing camps since the beginning of the charge of the current president of the Cameroon Football Federation, Mohamed Iya .
Both sides have had the support of former players who have also formed an association to make their voices heard. The Minister of Sports and Recreation, Adoum Garoua received a delegation of Geremi Njitap, Lucien Mettomo, Raymond Kalla and David Mayebi, all former members of the Indomitable Lions and the National Union of Cameroonian footballers (Synafoc).
“We made a presentation in which we commented on the situation we face. We have made suggestions. I think the minister appreciated. As we have always said, we are here for the interests of football. Let us find a consensus that will accommodate everyone. And that will help the Cameroonian football, “ said Geremi Njitap at the end of the meeting. The former Real Madrid player hoped that former players lead their football
“You know, football is not just the round ball. It’s also all those who surround it: doctors, infrastructure, etc… But I think the minister is on a very good path. His initiative comes at a time when there is the chance that the national team is at the top of their group in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers. The goal now is to qualify for the World Cup. It is therefore urgent to find a solution that accommodate everyone, “ added the former Chelsea.
The second camp, consisting of Emmanuel Maboang Kessack, Stephen Tataw, Edmon Enoka, Timothy Mackongo is in favor of maintaining the current president of FECAFOOT.
“They are now fighting a system they helped to establish. They ate in his hand, and now they are out of favor, they fight for their return by pretending to fight for the sake of the Cameroonian football. This is wrong and we will not let this imposture flourish “ released Maboang Kessack.
The future is not bright for the Cameroonian football. The leaders have to stand behind the FIFA rules, if they do not want a suspension of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, leader of Group I in the playoffs for the World Cup Brazil 2014
