Djomo Kelvin, head of the committee responsible for finding the new coach told Cameroon-info.net that “We have already started work. There are criteria to be respected and the files will be sifted two or three times before considering the shortlist.”

Siasia has enjoyed tremendous success with the Nigeria U-20 team, taking them to a second place finish in the FIFA U-20 World cup in 2005.
