The incumbent president of FECAFOOT, Seidou Mbombo Njoya put pen to paper on Wednesday, March 27, 2019 to appoint former Canon of Yaounde player in the name of Noah Jean Serge to the ever green position of national technical director.
Noah has a palatable football CV but he’s still questionable off the pitch, in his sideline duties as a head coach. He dazzled for the other Madrid (Atletico) and after a comfortable career he took up coaching and his red carpet moment came when he was in the helm of US Creiteil forth-tier club in France back in 2006. The 45 year old was carefully molded as a coach by the French Football Federation (FFF) and his coaching competency is fully backed by the FFF given that his coaching license is from there.
Jean Serge Noah would have dig deep, as titanic names have graced the helm of the post of National technical director since the inception back in 2010 which is 9 years ago, some cult hero’s like Jean Manga Onguene, Robert Atah, Jean Paul Akono and Etienne Sonckeng.
The former leader of the normalisation committee, Barrister Dieudonne Happi and co modified the text and it now states that there would be just a single person as the National Technical Director and he would be aided by just an assistant.
Coaches in the nation would absolutely be livid with this decision given that some masters of the mind games exist in the nation but the federation choose someone who practices his trade in “no name” leagues. Former Bamboutos manager, Anciet Mbarga has just been soaked into the technical bench of Burundi, Ebwelle Bertin is winner of the Elite 1 2017/18 campaign, and even Sango Emmanuel Bosso were all snubbed for the position of the national technical director. The output is what the Cameroonian public awaits, and failure to perfectly execute his duties, Noah Jean Serge would be under immediate inside out scrutiny.
