His frequency of scoring may have made it gone unnoticed but Marou Souaibou’s goal for Cotonsport against Matlama’s on Saturday in the first-leg preliminary of the 2022/23 CAF Champions was his 20th in 42 games this calendar year for club and country.
In addition, the strike meant Souaibou who was Coton’s top scorer last season has found the back of the net in six different competitions since October 2021 as his career hits the crescendo at 22.
The speedy forward has punished keepers in the Elite One championship, Cup of Cameroon, CAF Confederation cup,Champions League for Coton and the Islamic Solidarity tournament plus the African Nations Championship qualifiers for Cameroon.
Souaibou’s trickery on the ball has made him a constant threat for defenders.
The former Sahel Maroua forward is in his fifth season at Coton but his first in the Champions League, hoping to leave the same impact as last season as he scored all three goals to help Coton reach the group stages of the Confederation cup.
The captain’s eleven goals in the league – including a scremer in the semi final of the playoffs propeled Gabriel Haman’s side to a 17th domestic title in 24 years in the top-flight.
Souaibou could be his club’s main source of goals this season again, but the question is how many years is he still left with at Coton?.
