Essa Sambou has been unveiled as the caretaker coach of Bombada FC, after Lamin Anthony Ceesay was appointed as the club’s new technical director.

Coach Sambou has guided Brikama United to their first-ever domestic division one league title, in the 2010-2011 season.

 Coach Sambou was fired as Brikama United head coach in 2012 after his side’s 1-0 defeat to Senegalese Premier League side US Ouakam, in the first leg of the 2012 CAF champions league tie played at the Brikama Box Bar Mini Stadium.

Sambou was part of coach Lamin Anthony Ceesay’s back room prior to his appointment as the caretaker coach of the Brikama-based outfit.

Bombada are currently languishing bottom place in the country’s top flight league, with only 3 points in seven league matches after losing six matches and winning one.

It would be recalled that Ceesay has guided Bombada FC to the  West Coast Region third  division qualifiers, and gained promotion to the second division in 2012-2013 season; spending one season in the second tier before gaining promotion to the top flight, in the 2014-2015 season, before his appointment as the club’s new technical director.
