Former Black Queens goalkeepers trainer Cudjoe Addo ended up shooting two birds with one bullet after becoming a goalkeepers coach of the Mauritius national team despite moving there for medical attention.

The hardworking goalkeepers coach who is now a CAF Goalkeepers Instructor reveals he was invited to Mauritius by the current president to undergo a waist operation he had suffered for close to a decade.

But he was handed the national teams goalkeeping jobs because the country was deficient in that area.

"I had an injury on my waist during my playing career that led to ending my career. So after the Black Queens gold medal winning feat at the 2015 All Africa Games, I was invited by the Mauritius president to come for medical attention. I had played and coached his team ten years ago in Mauritius," he said.

"So before they commenced my treatment, they pleaded with me to handle their youth team to prepare for a tournament in France. Afterwards, they engaged me to help the national team to prepare for the clash against Ghana.

"They eventually made me their national goalkeepers trainer because they saw their shot stoppers were improving swiftly under me," he added.

Cudjoe Addo is now back in Ghana from his coaching expedition in Mauritius and us ready to take up a job if any avails itself.
