The Total CHAN Cameroon 2020 has come and gone and all eyes are now focused on the those managing football in Cameroon to see what next.
March 17, 2021 will make exactly a year since the football league in Cameroon was suspended due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
The imbroglio between the Cameroon Football Federation, FECAFOOT and the Professional Football League, LFPC had paralyzed the resumption of the league one and two championships despite efforts from both sides.
Instead of playing football on the pitches, everything was now done in the offices and courts with footballers suffering the consequences. Communiques and counter communiques from both institutions was the order of the day.
The African Nations Championship, CHAN came and all the ‘noise’ had to die down. The competition is now over. What next? Where do we go from here? When will our professional football championships start? Is football still going to be played in the offices as it has been the case for some years now?
If one has to go by the suffering most players and coaches, who are the main football actors have been subjected to for the past months, then it is time for these “self-centered” football administrators to quit the stage.
Think of the money club presidents have invested since they started preparing for the season. Funny enough, they don’t even know when the championship will begin. Something has to be done.
With the next edition of the CHAN announced for Algeria next year, there’s an urgent need for football to regain it’s rightful place. Else the intermediate Lions may not even qualify for the next edition of the competition.
Recently, the number one sports man in Cameroon, President Paul Biya, gave instructions for the immediate resumption of league, instructing the minister of sports and physical education to put at the disposal of FECAFOOT the earmarked stadiums and money.
