Former Cameroon international Patrick Mboma has submitted his application for the Indomitable Lions head coach vacant job, two months after the dismissal Clarence Seedorf and his assistant Patrick Kluivert in the wake of the team’s dismal campaign at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
Cameroon Football Federation (Fecafoot) said last week it intends to hire an indigenous coach as replacement of the Dutch pair but noted that some foreign CVs had been received.
Mboma, who played for Cameroon between 1995 and 2004, has been working as a consultant and commentator for France-based Canal+.
“I have handed in my application for Cameroon job and I am waiting. Although I did it without informing the media,” Mboma said late Monday during a live TV programme.
The 48-year-old former PSG striker, who won two AFCON titles with Cameroon in 2000 and 2002, retired from active football in 2005.
He holds a few coaching certificates, according to him, and is a technical staff member of Paris SC U-19 team.
Cameroon will host the Africa Cup of Nations in 2021.
