The Frenchman made the announcement after the African side were eliminated from the World Cup without claiming a point.

Cameroon lost to Holland 2-1 on Thursday, adding to the misery of their earlier defeats to Denmark and Japan.

"We have lost all three matches and my contract with Cameroon is coming to an end," he said. "It was planned all along that I would stop and I will stop with Cameroon."

Le Guen, who took over the Cameroon reins in July 2009, has been linked with the coaching role of Australia but said that he has not yet made any decisions about his future.

"I'm going to think about the future and we will see," he said.
