On an official communique released on Friday 20th by the Minister of Sports and Physical Education, coach Emmanuel Ndoumbe Bosso was named as the assistant of the intermediate Lions.
The experienced gaffer would assist Yves Clement Arroga at the helm of the intermediate Lions as Cameroon prepare for the African Nations Championship 2020 to be played on their home patch.
Perhaps the appointment of the Portuguese born Antonio Conceicao as the Cameroon national team head-coach, which was done side-by-side that of Yves Arroga and Emmanuel Ndoumbe’s appointment stole the headlines.
Emmanuel Ndoumbe Bosso is one of the best, if not the best as per the local league in Cameroon where he has won several titles and equally abroad in Equatorial Guinea, where he won the league with Sony Elenguema in 2015
The 1998 Cameroon cup winner with Union of Douala told kick442.com: “i was not expecting anything like this when I left the team”, with a little giggle.
Coach Ndoumbe Bosso was at the center of the den when Cameroon headed for the 2011 African Nations Championship in Sudan and narrowly lost out on penalties in the quarterfinal.
The 2013 Cameroon cup winner with YOSA added: ” I have been working with teams all over the country, and they have appointed many other people, so, I wasn’t sure of coming back. Fortunately, I am back”.
“I was surprised and very happy. I am getting towards the end, i need to do my best”- were the striking words of a man who has the burden to do more for country before putting an end to an overwhelming career.
Ndoumbe Bosso as regards his working partnership with head-coach Yves Clement Arrogo, stated “for the team, I would do my best because I know that my colleague is not based in the country. I would assist him in all I can, so we succeed”.
The Coton Sport manager further made these declarations as concerns the African Nations Championship 2020 “For the CHAN, it is a chance to win a trophy that we have never won”.
Emmanuel Ndoumbe Bosso almost ‘pulled a rabbit out of the hat’ when he went to Coton Sport midway through the season and nearly won the league 1 title, with – only some final day resilience from eventual Champions UMS preventing him.
National team successes of Ndoumbe Bosso:
58-year-old Emmanuel Bosso started with INJS where he took football as an option before going ahead to get the backing of the license A CAF and the UEFA license B obtained in Germany.
2008 quarter finalist with the Olympic Lions in Beijing, China
2010: finalists with the intermediate Lions in the CEMAC cup as head coach
2011: quarterfinalist with the intermediate Lions in Sudan
2007 and 2003 gold medalist in the All African Games in Algeria and Nigeria respectively
