Former coach blasts Eto'o and others, praises Iya after Lions' non-qualification

Hardly have Cameroonia

ns had time to swallow the bitter pill of another absence at the AFCON that former coach Denis Lavigne has gone pointing fingers. In an interview granted to and published today, the former Lions” coach blasted Samuel Eto”o, while acknowledging the striker”s talent, for wanting to be both a footballer, goalscorer, captain, coach and even minister. The Frenchmen went ahead to criticise Jean – Paul Akono, his successor, whom he called a “firestarter – arsonist” , in simple terms a double – edged sword. He equally did not spare others like Roger Milla, Jospeh – Antoine Bell and a host of others. He however had kind words for Iya Mohammed”s management of FECAFOOT. While this outing can be considered an attempt to absolve himself of blame and put some glitter back on his image in the eyes of Cameroonians, one thing stands out : some invasive surgery is needed to remove the cancer that is debilitating the once Indomitable Lions. Who”s next with some finger pointing?
