Former Liverpool defender, Rigobert Song has been confirmed as the new Cameroon head coach on the orders of the country’s president, Paul Biya.


The 45-year-old replaces Toni Conceicao, who led the national team to a third-placed finish at January’s Africa Cup of Nations and will be assisted by the former Congo-Brazzaville, Kenya and Equatorial Guinea coach, Sebastien Migne.


Song, the country’s most capped player, has made 137 appearances for the Indomitable Lions, and has also played for West Ham in England, had spells in France, Italy, Germany and Turkey during his playing career, while he also featured at four World Cups and won the 2000 and 2002 Africa Cup of Nations titles.


Meanwhile, the appointment is said to be unusual because Fifa rules require any member association to be independent and avoid any form of political interference.
