The local press revealed that he went directly to the bank a few weeks ago.

In its edition of 31 August 2016, the Emergence Daily reveals that Volker Finke, former coach of the national football team of Cameroon, has received 325 million FCFA, just a few weeks ago, for “unfair dismissal“. The newspaper said his Ghanaian vice Ibrahim Tanko will also collect 125 million FCFA.

As a reminder, on October 30, 2015 the German technician was fired by the Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT). Tombi A Roko Sidiki who just arrived at the head of this institution had stated to the press:

“We have coldly discussed the situation of the technical staff of the national team. After we found out that Volker Finke was not the man for the job. “

However it should be noted that the former Indomitable Lions coach had warned the Cameroonian part of the consequences that could come out of the above-mentioned decision. He then said,

in football circles, things are simple. There are regulations. I had a salary arrears. This has been fixed. They paid every month until October. It was the 30th. For all other questions related to my contract, I hope we can find an amicable solution. I am convinced that both parties will quickly find an amicable solution. I was suspended from my job, know it … I hope we can find an amicable settlement, because to me it does not matter to me at war. I hope that both sides will agree.

Having appealed to the lawyer Pierre-Alexis Bayebeck, he served two correspondences to FECAFOOT. The institution persisted in saying that the former coach of the Indomitable Lions can not succeed. According to sources, the President of the Republic who got wind of this folder instructed that an arrangement be found and that Volker Finke be paid.
