Cameroon’s Richard Towa named new Gokulam Kerala FC coach!

Double I-League champions Gokulam Kerala FC have appointed Cameroonian Richard Towa as their new head coach for the 2022/23 season.

The Cameroonian takes over from the hugely successful Italian Vincenzo Alberto Annese, who led the club to back-to-back I-League titles.

The 52-year-old UEFA Pro license holder from Germany is a former Cameroonian international and featured in 13 games.

After his stint as a player in the Bundesliga 2 for Fortuna Köln and Fortuna Düsseldorf, he coached various clubs in Germany in Fortuna Düsseldorf (youth), Alemannia Aachen II, KFC Uerdingen 05 (senior, youth) and Sportfreunde Siegen (Assistant Coach).

He was the Cameroon Under-23 coach for three years. For the last couple of years, he has been coaching different top division clubs in Cameroon.

“It is an honor to be part of Gokulam Kerala FC,” Towa said. “The club is a champion club in Indian football and I want to make sure the winning streak of the club continues further. This is a new challenge and I believe we can win more trophies together.”

“The coach is experienced and his strength lies in nurturing youngsters,” said Gokulam Kerala’s president V.C. Praveen.

“For Gokulam Kerala FC the motto is to develop talents and at the same time win all the titles. We hope that more youngsters will get a chance in the top flight and we also need a hat-trick of wins in I-League. So we believe Richard Towa is the apt profile for that.”
