When the Total African Nations Championship, CHAN, begins in Cameroon on January 16, 2021, two of the three coaches on the bench of the intermediate lions of Cameroon will be uniting for the first time with the objective of a greater achievement for the country.
Martin Ndtoungou Mpile and Ndoumbe Bosso Emmanuel are the only two coaches to have taken Cameroon out of the group stage of the CHAN and they will be sitting on the bench for Cameroon for the second time as far as this competition is concerned.
Coach Martin Ndtoungou Mpile took the Intermediate Lions of Cameroon to the quarter finals of CHAN 2016 in Rwanda when they were eliminated by Ivory Coast.
Ndoumbe Bosso Emmanuel on his part took the team to the quarter finals in 2011 when Sudan hosted the competition. The Intermediate Lions were eliminated after post match penalties by Angola.
With both coaches sacked at the end of the competition in 2011 and 2016, they have now been reunited again at the helm of the team as principal coach and first deputy.
The wealth of experience from both coaches will certainly be an added impetus for the Intermediate Lions of Cameroon during the competition as they look forward to winning the competition for the first time and on home soil.
With David Pagou as second deputy coach, the trio will therefore want to write their names on the history of CHAN.
