Football: U-17 Coach, Thomas Libiih and Technical Staff Sacked

The Head Coach of the Under 17 Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, Thomas Libiih and his technical staff have been relieved of their duties at the helm of the team.


The sacking of the crew was made public in a press document published by the President of the Cameroon Football Federation, FECAFOOT, Seidou Mbombo Njoya.

According to the release, the sudden decision by the executive of FECAFOOT is due to the disgraceful outing of the Cadet Lions of Cameroon at the ongoing 2019 U-17 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Another reason as advanced by FECAFOOT is the refusal of the team to sign the Act of adhesion to the Charter of National Football Selections.

Thomas Libiih’s team leaves Brazil at the bottom of Group E with three defeats, no point and a negative 5 goals difference.

The Cadet Lions of Cameroon lost their three group matches to Tajikistan, Argentina and Spain failing to advance to the next stage of the competition.

The hard nut to swallow is the fact that Thomas Libiih travelled to Brazil with a team, Champions of Africa but shamefully left no positive record.

Noteworthy is the fact that, Coach Libiih’s technical staff won two Central African Football Federations’ Union (UNIFFAC) trophies and 2019 U-17 AFCON in Tanzania during their two years stay at the helm of the team.

The new decision implies that cadet lions will have a new staff at the upcoming UNIFFAC Cup.
