Football - Cameroon: Coton Sport in turmoil

The reigning Cameroonian champion has a hangover. After a series of four consecutive defeats in the CAF Champions League, Coton Sport is unable to recover. The proof is that the Garoua-based club was beaten last weekend on the 16th day of the national championship. And all credit goes to Avion du Nkam, winner 1-0.

A goal by Jules Mayo was enough for the Académiciens du Nkam to inflict a sixth straight defeat on Coton Sport, all competitions. Mathematically eliminated from the CAF Champions League, the northern club is slowing down, locally. The Green and White (20 points) occupy the sixth place in Group A of the championship. They are 7 points behind the leader, UMS de Loum.

To that effect a crisis meeting of the club was held on Monday March 13 in Garoua at the club's head quarters. The sole aim was to curb the already incurred damages the club has received this far. Head coach Jacque Haman has been given a three match window to make things right, without which it could be his last games for the club according to information filtering from Garoua.
