According to our investigations, the negotiations between the Swedish coach and the Minister of Sports and Physical Education, Pierre Ismaël Bidoung Mkpatt, were inconclusive. Sven Goran Eriksson demanded a salary of 65 million CFA francs a month, while the minister offered him $ 30 million for him and his deputies.
