Barely 24 hours after this Pan-African Sports News Agency revealed links between experienced coach Simplice Njiki and Cameroon Elite Two outfit Foncha Street FC, things appear to be going well and very fast. has gathered that the Bamenda-based outfit are in the market for a new trainer and the former Fauve Azur Elite Elite and Aigle Royal of Menoua coach trainer is a priority and talks about a move to Bamenda seems to be positive so far.

Our team has information in good authority that the gaffer is 80% likely to be the next coach of the Club and will travel to Bamenda this weekend to advance formalities related to the deal.

Coach Armand Bomono guided the Club in the second segment of last season, but it took the outbreak of the Corona Virus pandemic to get amnesty to avoid relegation.

Foncha Street FC of Bamenda narrowly escaped relegation in the 2019_2020 football season, maintaining their status in the Cameroon league two championship after FECAFOOT decided not to relegate any Club after an abrupt end of the championship.

From a fairy tale ride in the North West regional league and a scintillating run in the 2019 national interpools in Bertoua, Foncha Street FC booked a place in the elite two championship, but failed to live up to expectations.

It was a topsy-turvy first season in the elite for the Northwest outfit, as they ended the season on the last but one in the 14 team championship.

With the 2020-2021 Cameroon league season tipped to resume in October, there is a possibility of Foncha Street FC hiring coach in Simplice Njiki on a one-year-deal in the days ahead.

Bringing in such an experience man in the Cameroon Elite championship could be a first step in the right direction for Foncha Street FC, who are setting their eyes on grabbing one of the tickets for the elite one Championship next season.

The 43-year-old former National Polytechnic of Bamenda coach is a client of Africa Sports management and no stranger to such jobs.
