PWD Bamenda could be stripped off its title of Champion of Cameroon- Learn how!

PWD of Bamenda who were crowned champions of Cameroon of the 2019/2020 football season after FECAFOOT called an end to the football season because of the coronavirus pandemic now risk loosing their crown because of an adjacent conflict.

The “Abakwa boys” who are actively preparing for their premiere at the upcoming CAF Champions League might see their dreams evaporate in thin air because of an adjacent conflict between Cameroon’s FA, FECAFOOT and it’s suspended Professional football League body LFPC.

The conflict between these two entities didn’t find a local solution and the matter was carried by the LFPC to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) with the following demands:to challenge its suspension pronounced by the federation on August 22, 2019, to cancel the professional championships season 2019-2020 organized by the Technical Transitory Committee (CTT) of FECAFOOT and to rehabilitate General Pierre Semengue, president of the LFPC.

Background History

The LFPC was indefinitely suspended by FECAFOOT which created a Technical Transitory Committee (CTT) to run the 2019/2020 football season.
General Pierre Semengue at the helm of the LFPC contested this suspension, taking the case to FECAFOOT’s appeals committee that gave a deaf ear. On January 29, 2020, Chamber of Conciliation and Arbitration of Cameroon’s national Olympic Committee issued a report of non-conciliation and the LFPC carried its case to the CAS.

The LFPC has paid processing fee of 14 million FCFA at the CAS and the latter had demanded FECAFOOT to provide its defence memo the latest on June 1st 2020. CAS has appointed a single judge, Professor Pascal Pichonnaz to arbitrate in this case between FECAFOOT and the LFPC.

The Stakes

In case the LFPC wins, the 2019-2020 season will be purely and simply cancelled and the LFPC and its president will be rehabilitated. This implies that PWD of Bamenda’s title of champion of Cameroon might loose its crown. Such a decision in the prevailing socio-political environment might create animosity in the minds of many.
Government through the Ministry of Sports and physical education should take the bull by the horn and bring a rapid solution to this conflict between these two football entities that has been existing for a couple of years now.

The decision of the CAS is being awaited in the upcoming days.

Jean Pierre Nsame Equals Eto’o’s record.

Published

on

Jean Pierre Nsame is Africa’s best striker of this 2019-2020 season with 30 goals in 30 games equalling Eto’o s record (30 goals scored during the 2008/2009 season with FC Barcelona. ) of Cameroonian player with the best scoring record in a European championship.  With 2 playing days to go, Jean Pierre Nsame still has the chance to beat this record.

What next for Nsame:

 

Jean Pierre Nsame he has suitors all around Europe and at 27 pundits recommend him to go for a greater challenge in one of the top 5 European championships. A middle table club in the EPL for example can be a good choice in order to have much playing time and rise to challenge the best strikers of Europe.

It’s surprising that he has just 1 caps with the indomitable lions of Cameroon and still pulling his legs when it concerns national duty.
With such a record, much will henceforth be expected of him by the Cameroonian football managers and fans to rekindle a team which has only scored 1 goal in its last 3 games played after the 2019 AFCON.

Coton Sport’s old guard-most of whom will leave the team by the beginning of the upcoming 2020/2021 season

Nevertheless, recruiting 13 and more new players adding to the bunch of existing players (some of whom have prolonged their stay with the club in the likes of Burkinabe forward Sibir) makes a bunch of good individual talents but will require much time to become a team. Most of these players originally from the south of the country will need time to adapt to the climatic conditions of Garoua and equally to the pressure from fans.
