Tuesday, July 12, the president of the Cameroon football federation -Samuel Eto’o has signed several releases confirming changes in the ranks of at least two national selections.
Among these multiple moves is the decision to replace Bill Tchato with Benoît Christian Angbwa Ossoemeyang in the role of the general coordinator of all of the national selections.
Benoit takes over from Bill who occupied the role for four years. This appointment gives him the first possibility to serve his nation since the strong left-back retired from football in 2017.
The ex-Fovu of Baham and Montpellier defender played with Samuel Etoo at Anzhi Makachkala and the national team during some portion of his 17-year career that took him from Cameroon to France, Russia, and back in France before retirement.
Angbwa will be in charge of ensuring the smooth functioning of the different categories of the national teams during his era.
In a related development, popular Sports reporter Thierry Ndoh Elie has been named Media Officer of the senior national selection. He replaces Serge Guiffo who occupied the role for just over two years. Ndoh known by many in football circles was a close associate of Eto’o during the race to his election. He becomes the first private sector Journalist to get the job after a series of state-registered Journalists from the CRTV occupied that role for decades.
As part of the changes, Dr. Fotso Patrick Joel replaces William Ngachu while Fomekong Elias and Eko Pearl Mokase join the staff as additional Physiotherapists and Kits managers respectively. Simo Nogue Appolos Ulrich and Ebolo Abada Pierre Arnold who had been around the den for a while are confirmed as photographer and Liason Officer respectively.
Eto’o has also effected changes on the staff of the Under-20 selection, replacing head coach Christophe Ousmanou with Augustine Simo. Simo, an ex-international formed part of the Lions staff that achieved the eighth FIFA World cup qualification in Blida.
He will be assisted by Kemnoe Simo Yvan Loic, Eboue Eboue Andre as goalkeeper trainer, and Ndikum Blaise as the team’s fitness coach. Ndikum was fitness coach of the Under-23s before the recent move.
President Eto’o is expected to make more changes in the days ahead as he continues the process of implementing his vision for Cameroon football.
