Jean Pierre Nsame Equals Eto’o’s record.
Jean Pierre Nsame is Africa’s best striker of this 2019-2020 season with 30 goals in 30 games equalling Eto’o s record (30 goals scored during the 2008/2009 season with FC Barcelona. ) of Cameroonian player with the best scoring record in a European championship. With 2 playing days to go, Jean Pierre Nsame still has the chance to beat this record.
What next for Nsame:
Jean Pierre Nsame he has suitors all around Europe and at 27 pundits recommend him to go for a greater challenge in one of the top 5 European championships. A middle table club in the EPL for example can be a good choice in order to have much playing time and rise to challenge the best strikers of Europe.
It’s surprising that he has just 1 caps with the indomitable lions of Cameroon and still pulling his legs when it concerns national duty.
With such a record, much will henceforth be expected of him by the Cameroonian football managers and fans to rekindle a team which has only scored 1 goal in its last 3 games played after the 2019 AFCON.
Transfer: Nlend and 3 others complete Coton Sport’s list of 13 New Signings
Coton Sport of Garoua once more hits the transfer headlines with 4 new signings; Goalkeeper Narcisse Nlend Junior from Bamboutos FC of Mbouda, Souleymanou Alhadji from Union Sportive of Douala, Mamoudou Hassana and Boubakary Bouba both from Sahel of Maroua.
These 4 new players come to join the other 9 current recruits, making a total of 13 new players on board and according to internal sources, more signings from abroad are still to come.
The club from the left bank of the Benue river ended runner’s up of the 2019/2020 season that ended abruptly due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
For seen as Cameroon’s representative of the Caf Confederation Cup, Coton Sport is reinforcing its squad with the best players from Cameroon’s local championship.
Nevertheless, recruiting 13 and more new players adding to the bunch of existing players (some of whom have prolonged their stay with the club in the likes of Burkinabe forward Sibir) makes a bunch of good individual talents but will require much time to become a team. Most of these players originally from the south of the country will need time to adapt to the climatic conditions of Garoua and equally to the pressure from fans.
The upcoming 2020/2021 season scheduled to kick off by the last week of September will see many clubs with new faces and these great changes will impact the league table with a number of uncertainties.
