Herman Oumarou Sokba has stepped down from the role of head coach of Union Sportive of Douala after just 17 matches this season. A letter which kick442.com stumbled on cited security and sporting reasons.
This comes after a terrible run of results for the Nasara Gamakai since the start of the 2022-23 campaign, including a 1-1 draw against relegation-threatened AS Fortuna at home last Sunday, a match in which they failed to impress and Sokba was booed by his own fans.
“I Oumarou Sokba Herman write to inform you of my resignation from the role of the head coach of Union Sportive of Douala due to security, sporting viz; that’s non-qualification for the title playoff. Mr president accept my gratitude and I wish the club the best in future,” Sokba wrote.
In total, Union won five, had draw in eight and lost four of Sokba’s 17 matches as head coach.
In that run, Union lost to Douala rivals Astres and newcomers Gazelle FA will is unacceptable by the standards of the 2012 champions.
They only won three of their last ten matches, are fifth in the league – 10 points behind Pool B leaders Bamboutos FC and six points off Gazelle FA in the only other playoff position.
Under Sokba, Union scored 16 goals and conceded 14 in 17 league games. Which falls short of the trainer’s standard and the expectations of the club, thus leading to the decision to leave.
Sokba, who previously managed APEJES, UMS, Djiko FC and Fauve Azur Elite is a free agent while Union are in the market to get a permanent manager for the rest of the season.
