(Reuters) - Cameroon's soccer federation has dismissed former striker Roger Milla
from his post as honorary president of the organisation after his calls for a clean-up
of the leadership.
Milla set up a committee last month to press for the axing of the football federation
executive, blaming them for the country's poor performance in recent years and the
eight-month suspension of national team captain Samuel Eto'o, who led a player
striker over unpaid bonuses last year.
Milla, whose goal-scoring exploits helped Cameroon to reach the 1990 World Cup
quarter-finals, also called federation president Iya Mohamed "a kidnapper".
The decision to sack Milla was made at a general assembly meeting of the
federation, which has expressed support for long-serving president Mohamed.
