Former internationals Pierre-Francois Aubameyang and Daniel Cousin take over as joint coaches of Gabon after Jose Antonio Camacho’s contract was not renewed.
Aubameyang, whose son Pierre-Emerick plays for Arsenal, played 80 times for the Gabon national team, and has previously worked as a scout for AC Milan.
He will become the joint manager with Daniel Cousin, who garnered 33 Premier League appearances for Hull City.
The two will have equal roles, with the ultimate target of the team being to qualify for the 2019 African Cup of Nations.
“Given the urgency and the current situation, it was decided to constitute, around the Panthers of Gabon, group of coaches with a very good knowledge of Gabonese football and its environment,” Fegafoot announced.
“Therefore, we have as national coaches, Pierre François Aubameyang and Daniel Cousin, while Françols Amegasse will act as General Manager.
“These three former captains of the national football team deserve, with their strong knowledge on the field and experience of top level competitions, to transmit their experience and tactical abilities to the team.”
