After a career as an outstanding player, the former captain of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon wants to embrace a coaching career. And his biggest dream is to become the first coach to lead a large European team.
” I think I won a lot in the stadiums and it would be my job to pass on all that experience. And, I tried for a few months the role of coach, I can play a team. My dream would be to be the first African coach to coach a great European team. Just because we are used to taking our foreign brothers, but our foreign brothers never take us to lead their teams or their Nations. So, it’s the little boy’s dream that I have. And that’s what I would like to do, “he added.
As a reminder, it was on his Instagram account that the 38-year-old announced on September 6, 2019, that he was putting an end to his rich football career.
