  • In 2017, Minkreo Birwe became only the second Cameroonian coach to take a local club to the group stage of the CAF Champions League
  • APEJES hired him to replace Cyrille Billong who has been relieved of his duties
  • APEJES are stirring relegation and an end to their over a decade stay in the top-flight championship

Cameroon Elite One old timers APEJES of Mfou have completed the acquisition coach Minkreo Birwe for the rest of the 2023/24 season.

The experienced former Cotonsport of Garoua trainer replaces Cyrille Billong on a short-term deal which will last the duration of the relegation playoffs and span seven matches.

The move provides a window back to the coaching commitment for Minkreo Birwe who had excused himself from such responsibilities since departure from Canon of Yaoundé two seasons ago.

Coach Birwe was presented to the club’s players this week by president Leon Aime Zang and he immediately took office to ensure that Noh Nafeng Yvan, Teikeu Parfait and co are ready before the start of the eight-clubs relegation playoffs which will end without five clubs in the top-flight.

Birwe walks into the job with a bag of experience – having previously worked for Cotonsport, Dragon Yaoundé, Canon of the same city and Aigle Royal of Menoua plus the U-17 girls national team and most-recently the indomitable Lions team in last month’s Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Côte D’Ivoire.

The Cameroon football federation (FECAFOOT) postponed the relegation dogfight and other playoffs competition for the second time this week.

However, they have announced that the different competitions will finally begin on March 22 and run for three weeks across different cities.
