Song leaves role as Cameroon coach after contract expires

Feb 28 (Reuters) – The Cameroon Football Federation (Fecafoot) will not renew coach Rigobert Song’s contract, which expired on Wednesday, ending his two year stay at the helm, officials confirmed.
Song, who won 137 caps with Cameroon as a player, led the side to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, where they beat Brazil but exited in the first round.

He could only guide the side to the last-16 at the recent Africa Cup of Nations finals in Ivory Coast, beaten by eventual finalists Nigeria.

Fecafoot said in a statement.

“In the next few days, the details of the recruitment process for a new Indomitable Lions coaching staff will be announced.”
