Milla removed as Cameroon FA honorary president

Cameroon great Roger Milla has been removed as honorary

president of the country’s football federation after criticizing

top officials.

Cameroon’s federation, Fecafoot, fired Milla late Wednesday over

his ”attacks” on the body in the last year.

Milla, who led Cameroon to the quarterfinals of the 1990 World

Cup and is recognized as one of Africa’s great players, told The

Associated Press it was ”a great relief” and promised to continue

his campaign to remove the federation leadership. He added ”the

decision doesn’t hurt me in the least.”

The 59-year-old Milla has been critical of Fecafoot president

Mohammed Iya and other officials over Cameroon’s failure to qualify

for January’s African Cup and disciplinary action against player

Samuel Eto’o.
