The German born Volke Finke has defied all speculation and appointed as coach of the indomitable lions to take over from Jean Paul Akono who steps down after the Lions next three matches.

Volker Finke appointment was made public on Wednesday night over the 8:30pm news over state television. The German is said to have signed a contract that would see him through 2014 and with an option for four additional years.

Volke Finke was not amongst the front runner after the list of potential candidates was narrowed to 3, with the French duo, Antione Kombaure and Raymond Domenech highly favoured to pick up the job.

But the German had his cards close to his chest. Puma the lions official sponsor had preferred him to any of the other contenders for the job and is believed to have played an important part in helping him secure the job.

The name of his assistance and other close collaborators would be announced subsequently.
