Former Indomitable Lions midfield anchor, Nicolas Alnoudji has revealed he is not interested to become a coach, but insists he is looking forward to embrace a role as a club’s Sporting director or general manager once he is set.

The 2000 Sydney Olympic gold medalist and 2002 Africa Cup of Nations winner has enjoyed a remarkable career and helped the Indomitable Lions defend their continental title in 2002.

Anouldji told he isn’t keen on being a coach and stressed on the point that being a good footballer isn’t a prerequisite for the top job.

The 40-year-old believes he will be able to better groom Cameroonian youngsters to stardom in his dream role as club’s sporting director or general manager, once the opportunity presents itself.

“I am not working toward being a coach,” Anouldji said.

“Being a good footballer doesn’t make you a good coach. However, I intend to study but not to become a gaffer”

“Am more interested to become a club’s general manager or Sporting director, trying to professionalize the club. I want to return what football gave to me. Thanks to Brasserie academy, I was able to become what I am today”

“I will still remain within football. I think I have a vision and will ensure I make upcoming talents realize that there are opportunities here. Not necessarily traveling abroad”

Nicolas Alnoudji drew the curtains of his international career in 2011 with Coton Sport of Garoua.
