“I take this opportunity to introduce to you Ibrahim Tanko, who was a great player. I have worked with him for a long time. He played in Germany for 12-years," he told pressmen yestersay in Yaounde.
The German sweat merchant was very clear on hierarchy amongst his assistants since Tanko would increase the number of deputies to four having met Martin Ndtoungou Mpile, Sylvain Monkam and Jacques Songo’o.
“The concept of number one or number two does not exist for me. We work together and it is not the hierarchy in the work that matters,” he said as-a-matter-of-factly.
Ibrahim Tanko, 35, is a UEFA licence A holder and has played professional football in Europe for long.
It is hoped that the two foreigners (Finke and Tanko) would bring new ideas in the den that would help break the spell hovering over the Lions for some time now.
Cameroon failed to make it to last two the African Cup of Nations campaigns and their last World Cup outing was their poorest.
Now Volker Finke has been hired by the Cameroon FA to qualify the team to the next World Cup tournament that would be hosted by Brazil and the German would get his first real challenge this month when the Lions clash with Togo in their round 2014 WC qualify in Togo.
