Cameroon advertise for new manager to replace Volker Finke on website

Having chosen to part ways with Volker Finke just two weeks before their World Cup qualifying campaign began in early November, Cameroon are still in the process of appointing the veteran German coach's successor.

The Cameroon football federation, Fecafoot, have taken the unusual step of advertising their vacancy on their official website and on social media.

"Call for applications for the recruitment of a head coach," Fecafoot tweeted on Monday.

The tweet included a link to a classified listing on the organisation's website that outlined the qualifications and characteristics any prospective new coach should have.

"Any candidates should be of Cameroonian or foreign nationality, of good character, physically fit and healthy and have a strong personality," the advert reads.

Interested parties must also "have a credibility and enjoy national and international recognition... have a good knowledge of African football... be willing to reside permanently in Cameroon... and have a good contacts book in the professional field."

Should you be interested in applying, you'd better get a move on, as the deadline for entries is Tuesday at 6 p.m. CET.
