Fecafoot overturns bans
The coach of the national under 17 women selection Fomum Victorine and her deputy Noukuiko Noundui Felix have seen their life bans reduced to simple blame letters by the Cameroon football federation Fecafoot.
The association had earlier banned the two for life from coaching in Cameroon for what they termed poor behaviours, accusing the two of receiving money from players before selecting them.
The two coaches wrote to the federation and demanded further inquires, which later proved that they were wrongly accused. Talking to SuperSports.com, the head coach Victorine Fomum sounded relieved. "Who will not be happy with such a decision ?,' she said, adding I had and will never receive money from any person to select a player because that will mean jeopardising the career and talents of youngsters."
In the meantime, the two were blamed for using their positions to establish passports for some of the players without express permission from the administrative unit of the national football team. However, Victorine said it was a way of increasing the chances of these kids acquiring the document on time since the administrative unit was slow in reaction. She added, in the past we've seen players failing to travel because the state could not obtain their passports on time, so I wanted to prevent that from happening since my team had to travel to Ghana for the world cup qualifiers.' On the allegations that they received more than was needed for the document to be established, she brushed that aside saying,"that is pure speculation."
The two thereby regain their positions as coach and deputy coach of the Cameroon women under 17 selection.
