Tiko, Cameroon-Sunday December 24, 2017- 10:49 PM Local Time (Cameroon News Agency) After months of speculation and anticipation,last season’s MTN Elite one top scoring player, Francis Maximilan Elimbi has joined Apejes of Mfou from Aigle Royal of Menoua on a 1 year deal.
The 22 years old Elimbi(Elimbut) scored 19 goals for Aigle(El Pacha) in a 34 games season last term leaving him as the league co top scorer alongside Niger international Daouda Kamilou.
The striker whose stock has risen tremendously within the last football year leaves El Pacha as a true servants.He scored 24 goals in two campaigns and equally made his international debut with the intermediate Lions of Cameroon(Against Equatorial Guinea) while he was in Dschang.
After months of negotiation Apejes’ president(Leon Aime Nzang) offered a cheque of 2 500 000 FCFA to newly elected president of Aigle Samuel Dongmo to secure the signature of the forward.
Elimbi will wear the jersey of just the 3rd elite club after stints at Bamboutous and Aigle were he spent last season.
Two season’s ago Platini Kaham was the top scorer in the elite one championship while he was at Lion Blesse but had a last season to forget at Union Sportive of Douala while Elimbi rose high to inherit the top scorer crown.The Menoua public will certainly miss Elimbi for his goals.The striker scored 19 of the club’s 25 league goals last season.
He will partner his international colleague Messi Boulit at Apejes under the young but master tactical coach Oumaro Sogba.But before that Elimbi have as first task to make Cameroon’s CHAN team,get to Morroco and fry the defenders in front of him before he returns for the New season in Cameroon.
Developments we are tracking have it that Elim-BUT may be making another move to a club Morocco in the months ahead for a bigger returns to Apejes.This is football business at its best and the smart ones involved get the fattest bank deposit.
