Arguably the captain of the best generation of Cotonsport of Garoua players of all time,former Captain of Garoua defender,Djene Orthega joined Cotonsport in 2011 and enjoyed great years of success as a Cotonite before moving away from the club.
Promoted to the captain of Cotonsport of Garoua in 2013 by coach,Gomez Darosa after Cotonsport finished runners up to Union Sportive Douala,Djene won the 2013 and 2014 league titles plus the 2014 Cup of Cameroon trophy.
This golden generation of Cotonsport players also made it to the semi finals of the CAF Champions league with Djene Orthega doing an excellent defensive job for the team,he will win his first cap for Togo while playing for Cotonsport in September 2012 and even participated in the 2013 AFCON as a Cotonsport player.
Djene left for Spain in 2014 and first joined Alcoron but this Sunday he was captain of the Getafe side that gave Barcelona a run for their money and restricted Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez to scoring just twice.
Though Djene’s Getafe lost the game,just the fact that he lined up for pre-match photos with a certain Lionel Messi, he used to watch on TV from Garoua makes it a super story for young lads back in Lome and Garoua.
