Cameroon football legend Roger Milla has claimed FIFA's recent letter to Cameroon that threatened to suspend the Cameroon FA was a diabolic harsh ploy by some Cameroonians. Said Milla in an interview with Le Jour: "It was not FIFA that sent that letter. It was our people who wrote the letter to be signed by FIFA." The Cameroon minister for football gave a justification for his take by wondering aloud "Why FIFA does not threaten the state of Benin or withdraw the authorization of their federation? Why would FIFA not suspend the US Soccer Federation? To Mr. Roger Albert Milla the Cameroonian media should stop brandishing a document written here and sent to FIFA for signature.
The letter that did arouse the ire of his Excellency Albert Roger Milla was sent a few days after the conciliation and arbitration chamber had canceled the General Assembly meeting organized by the Joseph Owona normalization committee on June the 2nd in Yaoundé. This decision of the conciliation chamber plunged Cameroon football management into crisis. To get out of this situation, Milla suggested that footballers be associated with other stakeholders in the management of Cameroon football.
