Cameroon-born French football Referee Gaël Angoula has been promoted to the ranks of Ligue 1 officials for the 2023/24 season.
Angoula, who was once close to a call up to the Cameroon national team as a defender earned the promotion by dint of hard-work and brilliant performances last season in the Ligue 2 championship. He joins elite officials like Stephanie Frappart and Clement Turpin in the big time next season.
