ARSENAL striker Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang’s father, Pierre Aubame, and Daniel Cousin, both former captains of Gabon’s national football team, have been named as co-coaches of the side after the dismissal last week of Spaniard Jose Antonio Camacho, the country’s football federation said.
Cousin, who was a forward at Rangers and Hull City, previously acted as team manager in charge of logistics. Francois Amegasse, another former national team skipper, takes over Cousin’s role.
‘We hope these three former captains will transmit their experience to the players,’ said a statement from the federation.
Camacho, a former Spain coach, was fired last week after a run of only two wins in 17 matches in charge over the last two years.
