Former Indomitable Lions of Cameroon defender Emmanuel Jérôme Kundéhas been appointed head coach of Cameroon Amateur League outfit Hemle FC of Botko.
The Club announced the move on Tuesday, December 22 after reaching an agreement with the 64-year old.
Though both parties failed to reveal the financial obligations of the employer, it was at least confirmed that the 1988 AFCON winner had agreed a seven-year contract with the objectives clearly stated.
“He will have to constitute his technical staff, a technical staff capable of putting together a team to compete with the likes of Canon Yaoundé and why not other great Clubs on the continent,” president Olivier Nguéda is quoted by LionIdomitable.net.
The fourth tier Club affiliated to the divisional championship in the Sanaga Maritime is therefore keen on improving on its status reason they hire the former Union Sportive of Bitam coach.
The Club will compete in the divisional championship for the upcoming season while hoping the arrival of Kunde becomes a turning in their history.
Kunde won two African cup of nations title and remains a respectable figure for the Lions with whom he achieved the rare feat over a hundred caps with the highlights of his international career being the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy in which Cameroon became the first African nation to reach the quarter-final.
At Club, he represented Olympique of Mvolye with whom he won the 1992 cup of Cameroon, Canon Yaounde, Proveyance plus a host of foreign Clubs including French sides Reims and Laval.
Besides being a coach, he is a fitting mentor to the next generation.
