Cameroon born Florent Ibengue has signed a two year deal with Moroccan giants, RS Berkane.
The 59 year-old who parted ways with Dr Congo giants, AS Vita Club on Wednesday June 30, 2021, was quickly captured by RS Berkane, who have signed the Cameroonian gaffer for a two year deal, with a monthly salary of $55000.
Florent Ibengue who is tipped as one of the finest coaches in the continent, joined AS Vita Club in 2012 from Chinese side Shanghai Shenshua FC, taking over from French man, Denis Goavec.
While at AS Vita Club, he won the local championship twice in 2015 and 2018 . He was also runner up in the CAF Interclub Competitions twice in 2014 in the champions league final, in 2018 in the Confed Cup final. He also guided the Dr Congo home base team to CHAN glory in 2016.
The gaffer will replace Juan Pedro as the new coach of the 2020 Confed Cup champions.
RS Berkane have witnessed a sharp contrast to their emblematic performance last season, as they finished Fifth in the Botola pro league with 33points in 25 matches. They lost the CAF super cup to Al Ahly of Egypt and failed to qualify for the knock out round of the Confed Cup this season.
With a juicy two year contract, Ibengue could be the man to change the misfortunes of RS Berkane.
