Former Buea United FC manager Barnabas Njoku has told the management of Feutcheu FC of Djiko Bandjoun that he is leaving this summer, kick442.com exclusively gathered.

The erstwhile Tiko United FC gaffer enjoyed a wonderful two-year spell at the Club being understudy to multiple coaches.

“It has been a wonderful two years together. I want to thank the Club, the fans, my players, the head coaches and president Joseph Feutcheu for the support. I wish the Club the best going forward,” Njoku told kick442.com.

Coach Barnabas was employed as a fitness coach of the Club in the build up to the 2109 season, and he punched above his weight in the end.

His time at the Club was characterized by the hiring, and firing of multiple Coaches. This phenomenon has been rampant in the last two seasons leaving Njoku as the head coach more often than not.

He masterminded Feutcheu 5th-place finish in last year’s Elite One playoffs. He took charge of the Club in their only victory in the competition.

Feutcheu FC under the guidance of Coach Njoku as interim coach, ended the 2019-2020 season on the 5th spot.

Despite his decision to quit the Club after just two years, he has become the first coach to stay at the Club for two seasons since they were promoted to the top flight in Cameroon in 2017.

The gaffer’s next plans are unclear, but he has told Kick442.com it is time for a new challenge.

“Well I have learned a lot from everyone at the Club in the last two years. What keeps us going in this beautiful game is challenge. I believe it is time for a new challenge,” the one-time CINYODEV of Buea boss concluded.

His tenor at Feutcheu FC Djiko fetched praises from observers, and his players alike.

It very possible to see him back at work in the nearest future.
