One of the most consistent coaches in the Southwest Football in the last 4 years, Joseph Mbock Maput has told this Tuesday morning that he has decided to step down from his role as head coach of Victoria United FC.

This comes after a difficult start of the new season for the 2016 and 2018 champions of the Southwest region.

Victoria United have lost all of their 2 games played this season and failed to show up in one.

Mbock guided Victoria United FC to the semi final of the 2017 National challenge cup attracting praises from in and out of the Region but his unbeaten run in the 2018 Southwest Regional Championship seem like long time ago.

A good number players have left the club in recent years and the 10 years stay of president Thomas Ndive as president of the club ended after he became the boss of Southwest FECAFOOT.

Mbock,a former player of the club became coach of the club in 2015 and in his 4 full seasons as head coach he took the team to the national Interpol twice and qualified once for the semi final of the cup of Cameroon.

“I think I need time to reflect on a couple of things before returning to the game, Victoria United will forever remain in my heart,it’s my family but I want some time out of football now for personal reasons;” Mbock told

He was also voted the coach of the year in the 2018 season in the Southwest Regional Championship.

The club face old foes NQSA this Wednesday in Limbe in a game that will remind Limbe of the goodness of one of the finest footFoot actor Cameroon and Southwest has ever known.
