Akono's days may be numbered



Jean Paul Akono's days as coach of the Cameroon national team may soon be over when the country's FA finds a new coach.

While Akono had been expected to lead the Indomitable Lions to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, the minister of sports and physical education, Adoum Garoua has written to the Cameroon football federation, asking its officials to go shopping for a new coach.

The Minister's approach departs from the one he adopted when he arbitrarily appointed Akono to rescue the Lions from disqualification from the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations. However, Akono failed to assure qualification for the team.

Akono's list of 24 players for Cameroon's match against Albania on November 14 raised a lot of controversy in the country where Akono was blamed for having victimized some players.

Nonetheless, Akono still has a chance to regain his job as the Minister's letter indicates that local coaches can also apply to manage the Indomitable Lions.

Cameroon were ousted from qualifying for the final phase of the 2013 Nations Cup in South Africa and are desperate to pick a qualification ticket for Brazil 2014.
