Patrick Mboma applies for Indomitable Lions job

Patrick Mboma has confirmed that he has applied for the post of Cameroon head coach, revealing that Algeria's Africa Cup of Nations-winning manager Djamel Belmadi was influential in his decision.

The Indomitable Lions are without a permanent coach after Dutchman Clerence Seedorf was fired in July following failure to defend the Afcon title in Egypt.

Mboma told local sources that he is interested in the job, and has already applied for the position.

The former striker has never been the head coach of a team before, having been involved as technical staff member of Paris Saint-Germain's Under-19 side.

He admits that he is well aware of the pressure that comes with being at the helm of the Indomitable Lions.

If Mboma is appointed Cameroon coach, he would be tasked with steering the Lions to the 2022 Fifa World Cup after they missed out qualification for the 2018 edition.

He would also be expected to help the Central Africans reclaim the Afcon title they won in 2017.
