Cameroon Elite Two outfit Fauve Azur Elite have to reopen the search for at least its head coach and two of his deputy trainers.
The Club’s head coach since January 2020 Herman Oumarou Sokba and his deputies including Anong Bernadette have stepped down from their position with immediate effect.
Kick442.com was reliably informed that three members of the technical staff with the exception of the goalkeeper trainer have left the Club this Tuesday, March 30 for undisclosed reasons.
Before the decision vetoed by a letter from the Club, there has been social media hints of a rift between the technical staff of the Club and its administration.
Such claims can’t be independently confirmed by the kick442.com team but we understand all three coaches have a letter which can keeps them away from the Club’s activities till June 2021.
Quizzed about his departure from the Club, coach Herman Oumarou Sokba had a few words to say.
“I am no longer the coach of the Club, I want to thank my players, the staff and everyone at the Club for the massive support in the unforgettable time we had together. I wish the Club the best going forward. I believe its time for a new page.”
The 39-year old gaffer who previously trained APEJES of Mfou to cup glory in 2016 and UMS of Loum to Super cup Bronze in 2019 is therefore a free agent.
Oumarou Sokba is the sixth trainer of 35 in Elite competition this term to either resigned or be sacked. In the Elite two competition he is the second following the steps of AS Matelots’ Christian Nyonseck who was sacked two weeks ago.
Fauve Azur Elite are currently second-seeded in the Elite Two championship with five points from four games ahead of their match-day five fixture away to OFTA of Kribi.
Sokba remains fitness coach of the Under-20 national selection of Cameroon awaiting new challenges while coach Anong keeps her role as deputy coach of the Indomitable Lionesses of Cameroon.
