He was named manager of Shooting Stars just before the West African Football Union (WAFU) Under-20 tournament that was staged in Ghana 2013.
The Former Diamond star and Real Republicans defender was also one time Under -17 national coach.
Bangura was the assistant coach to former Sierra Leone Swedish head coach Olaf Mattson during the national team 2014 World Cup and Nations Cup qualifiers in June last year.
