Richard Towa will return to the country sooner than expected.
He is much better, but he will return to Cameroon to continue care with his family. Richard Towa, a U23 coach currently in Baku (Azerbaijan) as part of the 4th Islamic Solidarity Games, is returning to the country tomorrow, according to Boney Philippe, the team’s press officer.
He was the victim of a malaise on May 11th while his team played the 2nd group match against Morocco (1-1). Driven to the main hospital center of the Azerbaijani capital, the former coach of Renaissance Ngoumou gradually recovers. He remains under observation “under the permanent supervision of the doctors, but also of the Head of the Cameroonian delegation Dr. Tado Oumarou, Secretary General of the Ministry of Sports and Physical Education and Senator Alioum Aladji, First Vice-President of FECAFOOT “Says Boney Philippe in a briefing note.
“The process of returning to Cameroon of the coach follows its course. Towa is expected to leave Azerbaijan on Tuesday on a regular flight to reunite with his family and continue on-site care in the country. The relay of the technical supervision is ensured since the unavailability of the main coach by his assistant, the former international Emmanuel Maboang Kessak, “the news still informs.
It is thus without their head coach that the U23 will play their last group match this Monday against Saudi Arabia. Samuel Nlend and his comrades are no longer masters of their destiny. To qualify for the next round, they have to beat Saudi Arabia (already eliminated) in the third match, hoping that at the same time Morocco (leader of the group with 4 points) dominates Azerbaijan (2nd with 4 points).
