Caiman Ladies of Douala have confirmed the appointment of 30-year old Cameroonian trainer Desire Djokam as their lead trainer.
The Club announced the acquisition of the former HO Academy deputy trainer last weekend after completing formalities and a tryout period.
The Club announcement of the gaffer’s arrival emphasized while stating the reason behind their move.
“We took our goals in the first part of the championship into consideration and we currently have a negative result. So we will have to give everything to get back on track,” the Club wrote.
Coach Desire’s desire to turn the tables has seen him quickly enter activity winning two friendlies and seeing his side score 12 goals in that time keeping a clean sheet.
Though Caiman struggled in the first segment of the season, getting just 11 points from 10 matches which leaves them on the 7th spot on the log, Djokam believes the content is better than what it has presented half way through the past.
“It is true that discouragement had settled in the sprits (both among the players and at the level of the management) but according to the information which I have garner, and especially what I see on the field, the girls want to perform again.. The first idea is to maintain the team and perform well in the Cameroon Cup.”
The next two weeks will therefore be telling for the former trainee trainer of Astres of Douala who was head coach of Essos United of Yaounde before his latest appointment.
Besides a good cup run and keeping the Club in the top-flight championship at the end of the season, the one time Kadji Sports Academy trainer for not less than five years wants more from his latest crop of players.
“Personally I want my players’ faces to figure in type 11 every weekend. If possible that my photo also replaces that of Coach HASSAN from AWA or that of coach KPOUMIE from LOUVES (laughs)
And that during the next camping of the coach Alain of the Indomitable Lionesses that I have at least four players in his list then I could have a feeling of satisfaction,” the tactician told the media.
Desire Djokam’s eleven years experience on the technical bench has presented him a new interesting challenge with much expected in the days ahead.
