30-year-old Cameroon international Leandre Kana Tawamba has announced he is leaving Saudi Arabian side Al-Taawoun after seeing out his two-year contract at the club.
The former Partizan Belgrade forward took to Facebook to announce his decision putting an end to his brilliant stint in Saudi Arabia.
“The story continues. New page soon coming. Thanks Al Taawoun for two special years.”- Leandre Tawamba wrote on his official Facebook page.
There is speculation that Tawamba intends to return to Europe but the player and his entourage are still to comment on his next move.
Saudi Arabian club Al-Taawoun reportedly presented a new contract to the ex Aigle Royal of Menoua captain but he turned it down.
Having impressed in his time at the club, scoring 24 goals in 41 appearances.
The striker known for his ‘killer’ instints in front of goal, Tawamba made himself a great asset for the Buraidah-based club catapulting them to a third-placed finish last term and the Saudi King’s cup triumph in 2019.
The former Union Sportive of Douala man masterminded the club’s 2019 King’s Cup success,scoring in the final to end Al-Taawoun’s close to 10 years wait for a major trophy. He was subsequently voted the club’s player of the season. He leaves Al-Taawoun as a cult hero.
The former Cape Town city man keeps his trend of not spending more than two seasons at a club since he left Cameroon.
Tawamba has won two caps for the indomitable Lions of Cameroon having featured for the Under-20’s of the Central African nation.
His limited number of games for the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon puts off premier league options given the eligibility criteria for recruitments of non European Union footballers.
