Elite One side Bamboutos FC of Mbouda might lose over 90 percent of their squad before the start of next campaign.
From inside sources, the West giants presented a year’s contract to new recruits, while failing to extend the running contracts of their ‘old guards.’
There shouldn’t be any issues presenting just a year’s contract to newcomers at the club, or waiting till the end of contracts to get an extension at a first glance.
Management of the Mangwa Boys, however, didn’t put their ‘joker’ cards to good use.
Agitations over unpaid bonuses and monthly salaries, plus bigger clubs lurking in-and-around some of the clubs’ big names, might see Bamboutos raided in this transfer market.
To this effect, a long list of players are now free agents and highly solicited by clubs inside-out the country. The change as this online portal understands, will begin at the technical bench. 2019 Elite One winning coach Laurent Djam – judged to have below average expectations might be replaced either by Gabriel Zabot or Sango Emmanuel Bosso.
Meanwhile, it is near impossible that names like Ngombe Etame (solicited by Cotonsport,) Mark O’Ojong, Rene Ndi, Pange Lobe and Arouna Dang (set to head to China,) return to the club.
Ending fourth in the just ended season behind PWD, Cotonsport and Colombe wasn’t scripted for the team that aimed for the championship.
Having spent this campaign out of home, Bamboutos heads back next campaign to a now renewed, exquisite Mbouda Municipal stadium, a state of the art infrastructure truely fitting for the status the 1966 formed club. A complete metamorphosing will be needed at the club to match the fans’ ambitions especially with the latest investments on infrastructure.
