With his contract running till the end of this football season Bawak Thomas Etta is hoping to continuously showcase his abilities, help his club to success and get opportunities from his participation in the ongoing CAF Confederation Cup.
Bawak Thomas Etta has been a mainstay at the left-back position for Coton Sport in the CAF Confederation Cup matches. The player has featured in all eight of ten matches that the team has played and was present as Coton Sport defeated Napsa Stars 5-1 on matchday four.
“It was a good game (against Napsa Stars) and I am happy for the victory knowing Napsa is a good team but we did our best to be victorious,” Bawak Thomas Etta said.
“I am happy for my performance knowing this is an opportunity for us to achieve success to sell myself and show myself knowing I was not part of those who took part in the CHAN competition.”
Bawak, once of the Olympic team and even preselected in the senior team in 2016, Under coach Hugo Broos according to kick442.com was an integral part of the Intermediate Lions team under then-coach Yves Clement Arroga. But after the sacking of Arroga Bawak was sidelined like other players and did not feature in the CHAN, a competition he says he was completely ready for.
And at 26-years-old Bawak Etta is hoping his participation in the CAF organize competition opens new doors for him.
He said: “It is an opportunity for me to show that I was fit to play and I think now everything is ok as we are winning. It is an opportunity for me to show myself knowing that my contracts run to the end of this season and I am giving the best of myself and with this competition I want to prove to the world that I am fit and get an opportunity to better my life.”
The former DAC2000 full-back has been one of the most exciting defenders in Cameroon in the last five seasons. The 2015 Cameroon Cup winner, plus the 2016 Cameroon Elite One champion with UMS of Loum has progressed through the ranks of the different national selections of Cameroon.
The versatile defender who plays as a left-back, right-back and occasionally as a holding midfielder was reported to be leaving Coton Sport at the close of last football season but decided to stay with the Garoua outfit this year and the decision seemed to have paid off with the level of performances he is putting out.
