Former Gabonese captains, Pierre Aubame and Daniel Cousin have been named as co-coaches of Gabon national team after the dismissal of Jose Antonio Camacho last week, the country’s football federation said on Friday.
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.
Aubame is the father of Arsenal striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang while Cousin, who was a forward at Rangers and Hull City, previously had 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.
