In 2000, he led Cameroon to win the African Nations Cup and the gold medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. In 2007-2008, he coached the Moroccan club Mas Fes, and last year was finalist of the CAF Confederation Cup with the Club Sportif Sfaxien (Tunisia).
He has also managed the Mali national team, but also clubs in Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
With his career as a player from 1970 to 1993 (Sochaux, le RC Lens, Olympique Marseille, Stade de Reims, Red-star and Paris FC ), where he played over 500 games (350 in Ligue 1), scoring 95 goals, the former French U21 international, joined the French Football Federation where he was manager, coach, instructor, educator and earned his D.E.P.E (Professional Football Coach Diploma), the highest football coach diploma in France.
It is clear and obvious that with such a career and experience, he is an ideal candidate to fill the new spot as manager of the Vietnam National Team, but of course it is up to the VFF to decide.
