The recently-sacked head of the intermediate Lions of Cameroon Yves Clement Arroga plans to drag his former employers (Cameroon football federation and the ministry of Sports and physical education) to court for unlawful termination of his contract.
The 40-year-old signed a deal to train the intermediate Lions of Cameroon till at least the upcoming African nations Championship competition penciled for January 16th to February 7th in Cameroon.
Unfortunately, on Wednesday, October 22, barely 86 days before the competition, the minister of Sports and physical education prof Narcisse Mouelle Kombi signed a release sanctioning the dismissal of coach Arroga.
The minister’s release replaced Arroga with 62-year-old Ndtongou Mpile with immediate effect while stating that the coach is at the disposal of the Cameroon football federation, whatever that means.
Kick442.com now understands coach Yves Clement Arroga plans to constitute a legal team in addition to his usual entourage with the objective of chasing for damage compensation from unlawful termination of his contract.
Details of Arroga’s contract as coach of the above-mentioned selection has never been made public. This makes it difficult for kick442.com to independently determine or confirm the size of the possible compensation, but previous events have cost Cameroon hundreds of millions FCFA. This appears to be a similar event except in a situation where the gaffer decides not to press for compensations.
Most-recently Indomitable Lions of Cameroon 2017 AFCON winning coaches; Hugo Broos and Sven Vandenbroeck won a similar legal battle against Cameroon and backed home over 300 millions FCFA.
Reasons for the firing of the coach who suffered defeat in one of his 12 games in charge remains undisclosed.
