Africa’s player of the century tells BBC Sport Online he is not interested in managing the Indomitable Lions.
Cameroon legend Roger Milla has said that he would never manage his country’s national team.
« If I am wanted as an adviser, I will always be willing to help, » he told BBC Sport Online.
« But I do not think that I would want to manage the national team. »
« Being the coach of the national team comes with a lot of problems and I just want to get along with everybody. »
Milla, born in 1952, celebrates his 50th birthday in May.
Several football stars including Eusebio, George Weah, Rabah Madjer and Hany Ramzy will be at the event, which will take place in Douala and Yaounde.
Le Vieux Lion (The Old Lion), as Milla is fondly called, said he has a lot to be thankful for.
« I did not think that I would be this successful as a footballer. But God has given me a famous name and I have to accept it. »
On the decision of Issa Hayatou to contest the presidency of Fifa, Milla denied being against the candidature of the Caf president, who is a fellow Cameroonian.
« I did not say that I am against Hayatou.
« Only one person has the authority to vote for Cameroon at the Fifa congress and that is the president of the football federation.
« I do not have the power to cast a vote, so I would rather abstain from any further comment on this matter, » he said.
