Former Cotonsport of Garoua midfielder Nicolas Alnoudji has tip the Club to achieve success in the 2020-2021 CAF confederation cup following their decision to return to their spiritual home at the Roumde Adja stadium in Garoua.
Speaking during a recent interview with the kick442.com team, Alnoudji highlighted the importance of playing at home not only to Cotonsport but to other related parties stating it will be telling.
“Yes, it is very important for the Club to host at their base. It is has been more than two years without that and the effect is demonstrated by the results. The population of Garoua have missed this so taking it to them will have a massive impact,” Alnoudji explained.
In all honesty, Cotonsport have looked less of the dreaded opponents they were once, since they unplanned exit from their usual base for continental competitions as the government of Cameroon took over the Roumde Adja Stadium to renovate it for the 2021 African cup of nations. That job was completed earlier this year, making the structure available for use.
In the absence of the Roumde Adja stadium, Cotonsport played CAF interclub games in Yaoundé and didn’t have a good showing.
Alnoudji believes Cotonsport’s return to the ground brings benefits to more than just the Club.
“Fans who are trading around the stadium will experience greater sales while having the chance of pushing their team to victory, CAF will be able to test the ground’s tenacity in times of events and above all the Club will be in a more familiar territory which enhances the chance of success”.
The Cotonites have been less daring and failed to reach the group stage of the CAF interclub competitions since they moved out of Garoua after the 2017 season.
