Le Guen has spoken exclusively with Goal.com…

Cameroon coach Paul Le Guen is hoping for a contract extension after leading the Indomitable Lions to a World Cup berth in South Africa next year.

Le Guen spoke exclusively to Goal.com about his hope for a new deal along with the exploits of star striker Samuel Eto’o.

Goal.com: Cameroon are definitely in the 2010 World Cup finals…

Le Guen: We had to work hard for it, but the team responded in the most difficult moments and showed that they deserved to go to South Africa. In these last four games, we were perfect.

Goal.com: What has been the key to success?

Le Guen: The victory in Gabon. The team made no mistakes and the comeback to qualification started there.

Goal.com: The Indomitable Lions have not lost while you have been on the bench.

Le Guen: The work is down to everyone and we must stress the players’ character. I’ve seen that we’re dealing with a group where we can trust absolutely in the work of both the individual and the group. I have just had to direct them with tactical systems.

Goal.com: Will you continue to lead the Cameroon national team?

Le Guen: My contract with the Federation ended with the game against Morocco. Honestly, I would love to continue working in both the African Cup of Nations and the World Cup, but this depends on the Federation. I have a meeting next week with them and everything will be decided there, but my intention is to remain until South Africa.

Goal.com: Is Samuel Eto’o fundamental to the national team?

Le Guen: He is crucial in many ways to the team due to his experience and quality. He provides goals and character on the pitch, which is why he is the captain. Everyone is with him and this is fundamental in a team. Samuel is an idol in Africa and no wonder because, for me, he is one of the best four strikers in the world.

Goal.com: What can Cameroon achieve in the 2010 World Cup?

Le Guen: It’s too early to say, but to progress past the first round would be great and then we’ll see what happens. There is a team here that is able to give joy to the fans.
