Paris (AFP) - Cameroon Football Federation (Fecafoot) on Monday took to social network Twitter to find a new coach.

"Call for applications for the recruitment of a head coach," Fecafoot tweeted.

On their website the federation outlined the qualities needed -- "to be of Cameroonian or foreign nationality (sic)... of good character... physically fit and healthy and have a strong personality".

Interested parties must also "have a credibility and enjoy national and international recognition... have a good knowledge of African football... be willing to reside permanently in Cameroon... and have a good address book in the Professional field".

Candidates have only a short time to apply with the deadline on Tuesday, December 15.

Among the frontrunners is Frenchman Claude Le Roy, who quit his post in charge of the Democratic Republic of Congo last month.

Le Roy, 67, has coached nations at eight Africa Cup of Nations finals and most recently led Congo to the semi-finals of the 2015 edition.

German Volker Finke coached Cameroon from May 2013 until his contract expired in October, with Cameroonian Alexandre Belinga taking over on an interim basis.

Cameroon have qualified for the third phase of the Africa zone 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
