Le Guen poised for exit

25 June 2010 08:00

Cameroon boss Paul Le Guen has confirmed he will leave his post when his contract runs out this summer after failing to guide the team to the World Cup knockout stages.

The Frenchman finished the tournament with three defeats from as many games after losing their dead rubber with Holland 2-1 on Thursday night

"The end of my contract with Cameroon is coming up," he said after the match. "It was planned all along that I was going to stop and I will stop."

Le Guen took over the Cameroon job last summer and in December 2009 signed a contract extension running until the end of the World Cup after impressive results in qualifying.

With that deal running out and with reports of interest from Australia, Le Guen stated that he will move on.

He refused to speak of the Socceroos reports but did say: "Naturally my mood is one of defeat, I know I have lost three matches in this tournament.

"My contract was coming up and it's the end of this mission. I'm going to think about the future now, and we'll see."
