Moroccan league 2 side AS Sale has acquired the services of Cameroonian midfield gem, Nken Nguilajoe from New Stars of Douala to help the team in their persuit for top-tier football
To say the least, Nguilajoe is a complete midfielder with a huge football IQ and helped New Stars of Douala play the last qualification round (playoffs) of the 2019 CAF Confederations cup campaign which they narrowly lost to Gor Mahia of Kenya.
It could not get any bigger than the midfielder’s acquisition for AS Sale who are currently ranked 9 after their first game this campaign which ended in a draw.
The former New Stars of Douala midfielder signed for the BOTOLA 2 club AS Sale on Tuesday, September 10, 2019.
The 27-year-old had a rollercoaster 2018/19 season with scintillating performances in the CAF Confederation cup and later, during the regular season, a bad injury had him out of action for over 4 weeks. His absence meant his former club New Stars met their doom with an abrupt exit from Cameroon’s first to second-tier football.
Nguiladjoe penned a one year deal from Astres to rivals New Stars of Douala in 2018.
The player has always distinguished himself as a fine midfielder in the Cameroon league 1, though he’s had his own share of injury woes restricting him from hitting top gear.
The former Union Sportive of Douala captain had a bad injury that sidelined him for a long period in 2016 as well as the most recent injury he shook off in the 2018/19 campaign with New Stars.
This is the second time the player is moving out of the country, after a failed move to South Africa in 2016 due to administrative reasons while he was still at Union Sportive of Douala.
The Fundersport graduate has enormous experience and exposure. He has played in the biggest stages; he was indispensable for Union in their 2016 CAF Confederations cup as well as the superb New Stars 2019 run to the final qualifying rounds of the 2019 CAF Confederations cup.
