One of the most iconic moments of African football was Cameroon becoming the first nation of the continent to reach the quarter final of a World Cup tournament in 1990 in Italy.
That generation set a blueprint and inspired other generations of Cameroonian and African footballers.
One of the heroes of the 1990 expedition is Jules Denis Onana who played three out of the five matches for Cameroon.
After a career in playing, coaching as well as a FIFA agent, the former Indomitable Lions defender feels it is time to get back on the turf and get Cameroon football back to winning ways.
He has thus placed his bid for the FECAFOOT top job under the guidance of returning to the basics and doing things the right way in order to regain past glories as was the case in the early ‘90s.
“We mean to defend and promote higher quality management of Cameroonian football, we have a commitment to success for all Cameroonian footballers, with the desire to improve the framework and conditions of work and life of everyone,” Jules Denis Onana said.
The 57-year old has thus based his programme on three main pillars, notably reorganization, structuring and communication in order to “resurrect” Cameroon football.
To him, the ultimate goal of his project is to “take in hand the destiny” of Cameroon football and pass down the indomitable lion spirit to the coming generations.
“I shall put in all my efforts to reorganize the entire Cameroon football ecosystem. (I will) enlighten the ability to influence and motivate all the right people with good will and ethical values, with an emphasis on listening and communication that are the essential qualities to found and grow new leadership,” Jules Denis Onana said.
