The Frenchman has finally put pen to paper on a deal with the Indomitable Lions of west Africa following their recent World Cup qualifying win
He is now officially linked to the Indomitable Lions for a year until November 2012 at a monthly wage of eight million FCFA (€12,195).
The terms of the contract state are odd in that the one-year period began in November 2011, a date at which he began effective work with the team.
The minister urged the ministry of finance to pay the Frenchman arrears for the period spent so far with the Lions, at which he had been working benevolently.
This situation has raised eyebrows as Fecafoot claimed to have been paying the head coach since Lavagne took office.
The signing of his contract follows the victory of the west Africans over DR Congo in a 2014 World Cup qualifier. Lavagne's team leaves Cameroon on Tuesday for Tunis, where they will face Libya in their second encounter.
