Veteran Indomitable Lions goalie Patrick Tignyemb has hinted on a possible return to his homeland Cameroon, through his official Facebook handle.
It was on Thursday November 5, that the goalie wrote in few words: ‘i have to come back and play in the country, its my dream.’
Tignyemb is considered a legend around South Africa, where he has been since 2008.
In fact, there is no looking past Patrick Tignyemb as per number of appearances for the club Bloemfontein Celtic. The shot – stopper managed a whopping 286 appearances for the club, taking them to unprecedented heights as a skipper.
Tignyemb left Bloemfontein Celtic due to financial constraints; he only recently emerged victorious in, for Chippa United in 2019.
The goal tender however feels his triumphant entry back to Cameroon could, and should begin not long from now.
Back in the day, Tignyemb began his early football career with Cotonsport before TKC, and then traveled to South Africa.
For starters as per Tignyemb’s performances with the national colours, he was part of the Cameroonian 2004 African Nations Cup team, who finished top of their group in the first round of competition, before losing in the quarter finals to Nigeria. Tignyemb also competed at the 2008 Summer Olympics. He earned his first senior cap for his homeland on 9 February 2005 against Senegal national football team.
