Former Dragon FC of Yaoundé coach Richard Towa is no longer the man in charge at Union of Douala.

The Germano-Cameroonian tactician announced his departure from Union on Radio Sports Info [RSI] this Thursday morning.

Towa took over at Union after turbulent run that saw the Diedo based outfit flirting with the relegation zone last season.

He replaced Daniel Walijom and made some telling adjustments to the team that saw them rise up and even contest for the top positions in the league before it was terminated due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

“I was brought in at the middle of last season to take charge of the team till the end of the season,” Richard Towa said.

“That’s what my contract with Union stipulated. The championship was terminated and right now we are all looking forward to the next season.

“If the management of Union wants me to continue, we have to all come together and agree on a new contract going forward. For now I am no longer the coach of Union of Douala.”

The 50-year-old former coach of Feutcheu FC is a former Cameroon international player, winning 13 caps for the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, including featuring in the qualifiers for the 1990 FIFA World Cup in Italy.

The former Union of Douala, Colombe of Sangmelima and Panthère of Bangangté player has also had stints at the helm of Cameroon’s U-17 and U-23 men’s national football teams.
