Rigobert Song, the Cameroonian football legend could be appointed by Samuel Eto’o as the new coach of the Indomitable Lions to replace Conceiçao who may be fired from his post according to the latest information we obtained.
The coach might be fired after failing to win the recent AFCON. Despite their status as host country, Cameroon failed in the semi-finals. The consolation was the bronze medal they obtained after winning third place against Burkina Faso.
According to the newspaper Jeune Afrique, it is the name of one of his former teammates, Rigobert Song, that Samuel Eto’o would like to announce to succeed Antonio Conceição.
In his letter sent, Friday evening, to the members of the executive committee of the federation, Samuel Eto’o asks for additional time to decide.
He proposes a new date for an announcement: next Wednesday, February 23 at 6 p.m.
However, we must therefore wait until Wednesday, February 23 to find out if the president of Fécafoot will win his case because the Cameroonian Minister of Sports, still supports the Portuguese coach, Antonio Conceição.
Rigobert Song is one of the greatest players in the history of Cameroon. He participated in the conquest of two victorious AFCON at the beginning of this century (2000 and 2002).
Nevertheless, his experience as a coach is short. Until then, the 45-year-old man has only led the Olympic selection of Cameroon and was also the coach of the Cameroon U-23 national team.
If chosen for this new position, his main mission will be to guide the Cameroonians to the World Cup in Qatar 2022.
