Senegalese coach Lamine Ndiaye has been appointed as the new coach of Guinean club Horoya on a three-year contract, to replace the sacked Didier Gomes da Rosa.

Didier Gomes Da Rosa also a former coach of Cameroon’s Cotonsport of Garoua was shown the door three days ago by Horoya because he failed to meet his target of leading Horoya to the semifinals of the CAF champions league. The Guinean club’s President Antonio Souare is obsessed with winning the trophy.

Lamine is a vastly experienced coach in the continent, with successful coaching spells in Cameroon and the DR Congo, where he notably led TP Mazembe to the CAF Champions League title in 2010.

He has also been in-charge of Maghreb Fez of Morocco and Al Hilal of Omdurman in Sudan.
He won five domestic league titles and two domestic cups with Cotonsport of Garoua. He won the CAF Champions League with TP Mazembe, two African Super Cups and DR Congo league titles. He also led the Congolese giants to the final of the 2010 Club World Cup, losing to Milan AC 3-0, in what was the first for an African team in the competition.

The 63-year-old who has also been given the target of reaching the semifinals of the CAF Champions League, began his coaching career 22 years ago in France when he was appointed coach of then French second tier side FC Mulhouse.

The former Cannes and Mulhouse midfielder played for the Teranga Lions alongside the great Jules Bocande and he took charge of the Senegalese national team on a caretaker basis after Polish coach Henri Kasperczak resigned during the 2008 AFCON in Ghana.
