Mr Biya had already given his recommendation for the hiring of Alain Giresse and was surprised to hear the name of Hugo Broos.

Thus, the prime minister has convened a meeting with Tombi A Roko, president of the Fécafoot tomorrow Tuesday, February 16, 2016 in his Office. It is expected that the Minister of Sports and Roger Milla who is belief to be the godfather of Hugo Broos will accompany TOMBI Roko.
A source at the star building, the Prime Ministers office hinted that ” Tombi who was still in Douala this Monday, February 15, 2016, was urgently recalled to Yaounde.Objective; finding means to calm the tension of the population.
The source continues I think the authorities are working on two fronts. Either to cancel the recruitment of Hugo Broos, whose employment contract is not yet signed, or organize a communication around the performance of new coach when he was a player and coach in Belgium. By every indication the Cameroonian hierarchy is not happy with the current situation around the national team”
