Read < 1 minute

Cameroon’s renowned football squad, the Indomitable Lions, welcomed their new manager. In a formal ceremony held in the capital Yaoundé, Marc Brys, a Belgian tactician, was officially introduced as the head coach of the national football team.

Brys is stepping into the role left vacant by former captain Rigobert Song, who resigned in February following the team’s elimination in the round of 16 at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

However, Brys’ arrival has stirred controversy in his new domain. Despite his appointment by the country’s sports ministry, the local football association (FECAFOOT) is pushing back. Association officials have announced plans to initiate their own search for a new manager.

Despite the turbulent waters, Brys has vowed to hit the ground running, especially with the 2026 World Cup qualifiers slated for June.

Cameroonian Sports Minister Narcisse Mouelle Kombi said the mission for Marc Brys is to qualify the Lions for the upcoming FIFA World Cup and ensure their commendable performance at the forthcoming Africa Cup of Nations.
