It was no surprise when first division club YOSA, had to ransack the market for a goal-hunter in the name of Ashu Tambe. The men in yellow and blue slightly missed out on CAF competitions due to their lack of efficiency in the perimeter. When you lack goals what do you do? You go out and splash the cash on one of the finest and unique hunters in the league. The journey man (Ashu Tambe) has played for over 6 Elite one sides, scoring over a hundred goals in the division, on his way helping ; Fouvu to a Cameroon cup, partnering with Kamilou Douda to sweep past others and get a historic double (Cameroon cup and Elite 1), and was an integral part of Union’s fairy tail Elite 1 triumph in the 2011/12 campaign.
Every two seasons the “journey man” wins at least a trophy. Talking to this reporter the 33-year-old mentioned ” it is all about the mind set and the team ethics. Once you combine these and hard-work, there is no way success would escape your grasp”.

If goal scoring is an art, then, Tambe should be the orchestra. There is a reason why he leaves most club’s as fan favourite as he did in his previous club Fetcheu, scoring one quarter of their goals and maintaining them in Eliite football. At Young Sports Academy, Ashu Tambe promises to put in a shift “Seasons are not same but my plan is to score many goals than I did last season”. When asked about pressure, the veteran striker had four words “Not in my dictionary”. While thinking about the resumption of the League “I am happy but would they respect the date”?

If the striker comes to his own when the season begins, then Emmanuel Bosso and co should be reaching for the heavens.
