The Algerian newspaper “Al-Shorouk” quoted the site web “Camfoot”, according to which public opinion sees the historic scorer of Cameroon as the first implicated in the “destabilization” of the stability of the locker room, and the issue is not only linked to the bad timing of the decision to sack the former Portuguese coach, but rather for the bad choice of his successor, in protest at what in the minutes was defined a “shame” for having handed the keys of the wild lions to a coach who was getting the worst grades at the French training center “Clarfontaine”.
