AFCON new comers Burundi will be traveling to Egypt with Cameroon’s Anicet Mbarga Foe on their technical bench.
Burundi’s 48 year old coach Alain Olivier Niyungeko will benefit from the coaching knowledge of Anicet Mbarga Foe who led Eding Sports of Lekié to a Cameroon League title three seasons ago and just masterminded a quick return to Cameroon’s top flight for Bamboutos of Mbouda.
The Director General of Afrique Medias Tagouh Justin who is former President of Bamboutos of Mbouda introduced him and told the Burundi football authorities about the wonderful football brain this serial winner has and they decided to get him on board during their last qualifiers and have chosen to keep him on their journey to conquer Africa in Egypt.
He is currently in Doha with the Swallows of Burundi who drew 1-1 last night with Algeria in a build up game to their maiden AFCON appearance.
Football lovers in Cameroon especially the special fans of Bamboutos of Mbouda will also have their hearts beating for Burundi as they will want to see this great ambassador of Cameroonian football make the nation proud in his own rights.
