Foe Owono is a silent and serial winner who is surely underrated and unsung. He is definitely on the queue for a ‘man of the year’ award if there’s any come the end of the season. The goal keeping coach once more is on his way to glory with FAP after leading the Under 17 to a championship in the most unlikeliest of Fashion with his trainee, Ekoi Manfred almost singlehandedly winning the trophy for country.
Goal keeping coach of the highest level, Foe Owono oversaw the victory of FAP to the Cameroon cup finals on Wednesday, after the club agonizingly missed out of the playoffs for League 1 promotion in the regular season.
On the 19 of June 2019, FAP swept aside Etoa Meki by 4-1 in the high profile Cameroon cup semi finals match between two league 2 teams who were wishing to make history. FAP and Etoa Meki were trying to earn the rights to play the Cameroon cup finals against Dragon or Stade Renard and at the end, FAP and Stade Renard were the chosen ones.
Kick442.com got to a ‘hand of gold’ doing the background work in a post match interview. Foe Owono, Under 17 winner had these to say concerning FAP’s run after the genocidal victory against Etoa Meki:“truly, my impression is one of happiness for all the work we have been doing all season, and that we arrived the finals does not surprise me because we saw it coming“.
Coach Foe Owono continued “in the beginning our ambitions were to play the playoffs “up” and finals of the Cameroon cup”.
Then, came the much awaited answer for the question everyone has been asking; first, the question; people say you bring luck to your teams, is that true? With a good old laughter he replied:”let’s say it is a season of luck. You saw with the Under 17 we won because we prepared well for long and I think that the same thing happened with FAP, I think God’s hand is involved in the case of my success”.
It would be indeed an outstanding season if coach Owono goes ahead to get the winners medal_that would put him right up there amongst the most successful coach’ in the nation this year.
