Cameroon elite one club, Yong Sports Academy of Bamenda has resumed training ahead of the resumption of the MTN Elite One championship.
Coach Ndikum Blaise and some of his players were spotted at the Bamenda Municipal Stadium on Tuesday January 30th, 2024.
As the team resumes training, kick442.com has gathered from reliable sources that Chi Chinda Chido Mitterrand Francois has stepped down from his role as President of the team. Although we couldn’t get the exact reasons for his resignation, it is believed that the reason for his resignation is his recent poor health condition.
It is unclear if the Yong’s family is now in charge of the team.
Chi Chinda Chido Mitterrand Francois took over the helm of the team in the buildup to the current season and under his president ship, YOSA currently seats 3rd in Pool B of the league with 17 points.
Amidst the resignation of the president, some players who are still to resume training are complaining about their financial situation. After speaking to some of the YOSA players who resumed training, we gathered that they have received just a month salary since the start of the season.
When kick442.com contacted officials of the team, they all refused to comment on the issue of salaries. But a player who refused to be named confided to us and said;
“We have received just a month salary. Our manager told us that the team is still to receive any franc from the federation, reason for the delay in the payment of the salaries”, the player said.
“We have been going through hell but we have to hang on and hope for better days. We hope FECAFOOT pays our subvention for us to have something”, he added.
As the team prepares for the last four matches of the season, it is left to be seen if they will travel for the matches. YOSA is expected to play against Coton Sports of Garoua when the league resumes on February 10.
