Milla dismissed after criticising Cameroon chief

Cameroon's football 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.
