Former Cameroon goalkeeper Joseph Antoine Bell has joined the race for the country’s football federation presidency, with elections scheduled to hold by mid December.
This is the third time Bell, 64, will be running for the top position after he was twice defeated.
For three years now, Cameroon FA, popularly known by its acronym Fecafoot, has been under the rule of a Normalisation Committee imposed by FIFA / CAF following internal crises that led to the dissolution of the hitherto executive committee.
Bell was flanked by his former Indomitable Lions team-mates Francois Omam Biyick and Roger Milla during a campaign meeting in the country’s capital Yaoundé on Monday.
“Football is our common goal in Cameroon. We need a strong administration to run the sport in the country. We need people with practical knowledge of the sport to run it. And that is us,” he said.
Bell played with the Lions between 1977 and 1994, winning the 1984 and 1988 AFCON titles.
