FECAFOOT : Normalisation Committee Head stretches a hand to disgruntled players

CRTV Some Former players of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon may come back to the team.
The President of the Normalisation Committee at FECAFOOT, Dieudonne Happi met with these former Lions urging them to come back.

Most of the players prematurely exited from the team or ended their international football career for different reasons .

According to FECAFOOT, the meeting held in Paris on Monday 5th March 2018 aimed at;

  • Reconciling the former players with FECAFOOT and soliciting a possible intergration into the National team.
  • Requesting their expertise on a possible restructuring of the National team and restore the brand name “Indomitable Lions”

ahead of the 2019 AFCON to be hosted by Cameroon.

Those who attended the reconciliatory talks with Barrister Dieudonné Happi in Paris were;

  • Samuel Eto’o Fils
  • Idriss Carlos Kameni
  • Allan Nyom
  • Eric Maxime ChoupoMoting
  • Jean Armel KanaBiyick
  • Stephane Bahoken
  • Andre Onana

Football fans and Cameroonians have been expressing mixed feeling on the social media.

Others are anxious to have the team get back the big names that gave the team a status as of the past.

Some think most of these players are indispensable arguing that the team won the 2017 AFCON without these players.

The latest development points to the fact that football remains the rallying force of Cameroonians.

  1. Good

  2. One key player is missing. Matip

  3. That would amount to blocking the new kids in town. Greed, no good.

  4. Decent social media in English and i suppose French would help.

  5. Matip, Alex Song, Assou Ekoto are missing. Among all of them, Matip is even the one playing at the highest level. I expected him to have called these ones as well. Eto’o might not be coming to play again but I think reconciling him with the FECAFOOT is a good thing because he is one of the highest that has help to bring up great players in the country through his academy and I respect that a lot. I still think the fact that he was treated badly and he decided to close his football academy was a great loss to the nation as the product of the academy are the ones helping the national team the most this time around. People should exit the national team with a good heart and being treated fairly, So I applaud the effort.

  6. Crazy idea! While other Teams are moving forward with Football Development and New players , Cameroon is looking to recycle old players. They may be used as rule models but there’s no place for them in the National Team anymore. Biyas Regime os Regressing very well actually at higher rate than the fastest developing football Nation in Africa. Cameroon Matching Backwards . Cry my beloved Cameroon 🙂

  7. They should give chance to the younger generation. This thing in cameroon where people are even brought back from retirements to take up positions is embarrassing.

    They have done their best.

    Things should be different.

  8. Why any Cameroonian should refuse to accept that any another Cameroon ( no matter what age )might want to help the country carry on with its football success (when these guys have been doing quite well up to now in football ) is …… Well weird .
    Cameroons always had/has a fantastic future in football ,got a good international and national reputation for it and even win ALOT of times in comparison to many other countries in nonprofessional and professional football.
    Just because the buisness/admin side of it always seems to be a mess ,that problem definately isnt caused by the players .
