Cameroon Elite One side Aigle Royal de la Menoua have appointed former PWD of Bamenda trainer David Pagou as their head coach.
The experienced tactician who parted company with the Abakwa Boys two weeks ago after three great years has joined Aigle on a two-year deal.
Upon his unveiling ceremony on Thursday evening, Pagou replaces Alain Nseme who was substantive coach of the Menoua outfit in the latter part of last season.
Winner of the 2020 Cameroon Elite One title and the cup of Cameroon earlier this year with PWD, Pagou arrives with an interesting record.
Aigle returned are back in the top-flight for the first time since 2019 and had to battle with UMS, Stade Renard, Fovu, Canon among other clubs that made advances towards the 53-year-old ex-Renaissance of Ngoumou and Eding Sport trainer.
The outgone fitness coach of the intermediate Lions is expected to put pen to paper earlier next week before the official unveiling ceremony.
Aigle Royal plans to build a massive institution around Pagou. They are expected to announce a number of signings next week as part of the new project.
Aigle have been drawn in Pool A of the 2022/2023 championship alongside giants Eding Sport, Cotonsport, PWD, Colombe of Dja.
The West Region outfit will open their season against high-spending Colombe of Dja in the Weekend of October 15. It will get more interesting in matchday 4 and 5 when Aigle face Eding Sport and PWD respectively, both of which are Pagou’s former employers.
Noted for his tactical astuteness, the trainer has been charged with building a team that will compete on the domestic front within the next two years.
