Baresi and Colombo for Cameroon

Italian duo for Cameroon Wednesday 19 July, 2006


Franco Baresi and Angelo Colombo are set to be unveiled as Cameroon’s new coaching team.

The pair have previuously worked together at Milan both as players and more recently as Coaches in the youth system.

Baresi - who represented Italy in three World Cups - spent last season as head Coach of the top tier Primavera side while Colombo was in charge of the Under-11 team. The former also spent a brief period as Director of Football at Fulham.

The Indomitable Lions have been without a Coach since Portuguese boss Artur Jorge left last spring but are said to be discussing personal terms with the Italian pair.

However, Angelo Colombo – who recently quit his role with the Rossoneri – was quick to point out that he hadn’t actively sought to leave the embattled club.

“Firstly I want to say that we didn’t apply for the Cameroon job, but the Football Federation contacted us,” stressed Colombo.

“So far all that’s happened is that our lawyer has sent a letter to the Cameroon Football Federation to say that we are available.”

Despite failing to qualify for the 2006 World Cup, Cameroon are still regarded as one of the strongest squads in Africa and expectations will be high for the inexperienced pairing.


My heart = INTER...No Matter Win or Lose...

Zanetti : I still remember my first day at Inter. I arrived with a plastic bag with my boots inside and I crossed the crowd of fans who were asking who I was. That's where it all started.....
