Portuguese Toni Conceiçao has been appointed new head coach of the Indomitable Lions, Cameroon sports minister Narcisse Mouelle Kombi announced Friday evening in Yaounde
Cameroon has been without a coach since the dismissal of Dutchman Clarence Serdorf who led the team to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Toni Conceiçao, 57, will be assisted by two former Cameroon internationals, François Omam-Biyik, as first assistant and Jacques Célestin Songo’o, as goalkeeping coach.
The former defender of Braga and FC Porto managed CFR Cluj in Romania before brief stints at Saudi Arabian side Al-Faisaly and Nea Salamis in Cyprus.
This is not the first time Cameroon will be working with a Portuguese coach. Between 2004 and 2006 Artur Jorge coached the Lions.
Cameroon will host the next AFCON in 2021.
