Gabon nearing Patrice Neveu appointment – sources

Gabon are set to appoint experienced Frenchman Patrice Neveu as head coach after Daniel Cousin’s dismissal in late March, according to reports in the country.

The Gabonese Football Federation relieved Cousin of his duties after his failure to get them into the Africa Cup of Nations, and the search for a new coach had been ongoing since.

According to Football365, referring to local sources, that search is now over, with the 65-year-old Neveu’s appointment set to be confirmed imminently.

The new Panthers trainer will be tasked with securing qualification for the next edition of the continental showpiece, slated to be held in Cameroon in 2021.
