Cameroon / Indomitable Lions: Herve Renard announced
Struggling in the qualifiers for the Orange African Nations Cup, 2012 Gabon-Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon is already thinking about the successor of coach Javier Clemente. According to indiscretions, French Herve Renard is in pole position to replace the Basque. Javier Clemente, the coach of Cameroon, who is far from achieving its objectives at the head of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, is on the spot. The Spanish technician, current coach of the Indomitable Lions, was to reconstruct the den and qualify the Indomitable Lions for the finals of the Orange African Nations Cup, 2012Gabon- Equatorial Guinea.
This is far from being the case. So, naturally, in Yaoundé, ther are speculations about the name of his successor. According to the local press, several coaches have already sent their CV to the Federation and the Ministry of Sports. The Bosnian Vahid Halilhodzic who is finally in Algeria, the French Philippe Troussier and Rolland Courbis or Spaniard Juande Ramos are names already mentioned.
But for the local press, the great favourite is called Herve Renard. Currently working at the club USM Alger of Algeria, the 43 years old French coach has some advantages: this habitué of Africa has a beautiful rating on the continent after remarkable tour in Zambia and in Angola.
In addition, Renard has a strong support in the person of Claude Leroy under whom he worked as assistant for three years in Ghana. At best, the technician should settle in Cameroon, as he has done in the past, in order to observe the international home based players and be in touch with the Cameroonian people.
