Lionel Essono in action for Eding Sport FC.

The 26 year old left sided midfielder told kick442.com this Monday that he joined Canon because of Wome Nlend, stressing the former Indomitable Lion, now administrator at Canon of Yaounde has always been a mentor to him so he couldn’t say no when Wome came calling.

“I return home,I had a good time here before and hope we take Canon Yaounde back to where we are supposed to be.This club deserves to be amongst the best teams in the land”;Otto added.

Essono won the 2018 cup of Cameroon title with Eding Sport FC in December but he has left for second tier Canon of Yaounde,a club he played for in 2017.

He has also played in Spain for Secunda B side Sans Roque and in Greece for Astromitos Athens.

Canon Yaounde narrowly missed out on promotion last season as they finished 5th but many followers of the club are optimistic the Wome Nlend’s arrival at the helm of the club will give the club a new life.
