The head coach of the intermediate Lions of Cameroon Yves Clement Arroga has been sacked.
Officials of the Cameroon football federation, the ministry of Sports and physical education met the coach for evaluation of the situation before making a decision this Wednesday.
The decision to sack the coach comes as a shocker just over a year after he was appointed to replace Rigobert Song Bahanag as the lead trainer of the national selection.
Yves Clement Arroga has faced growing criticism since Cameroon suffered a surprised defeat against Panthère of Nde and followed it it up with back-to-back draws against the senior national selection of South Sudan.
In all, Yves Clement Arroga has been in charge of Cameroon in 11 games, losing just once in that time and recorded four wins.
His replacement is unknown but kick442.com understands former Intermediate Lions of Cameroon head coach Martin N. Mpile, current PWD of Bamenda coach David Pagou and former Intermediate Lions coach Ndoumbe Bosso are heavily linked to the vacant position barely three months away from the kick off of the African nations Championship.
Cameroon host the sixth edition of the competition from January 16th to February 7th across four cities.
Before Arroga’s departure he had invited 28 players to camp in preparation for the tournament from October 26. It is unclear if the players will move to camp as planned in the current situation or not.
An official statement is awaited from the Cameroon football federation or its related institutions.
