Former Cameroon Indomitable Lions captain Benjamin Moukandjo, has retired from international football. The decision is contained in a communique made public on Saturday September 22.
In a press release, the striker on loan from Jiangsu Suning to Beijing Renhe in China denounced the attitude and statements of Clarence Seedorf, the newly appointed head coach of Cameroon national team.
“I became aware of my non-selection in the first list of players called for the Indomitable Lions preparatory campaign at CAN 2019 and statements of the national coach, Mr. Clarence Seedorf.
I find this approach inelegant and unfair to me,” Moukandjo stated
He added that, “Inelegant because I was not even entitled to a phone call, in my capacity as captain who led the Lions to the fifth coronation of Cameroon, in 2017, despite the contingencies that have repeatedly wanted in the shadows influence the maintenance of group cohesion. Unfair because of the argument put forward that players “exotic championships” do not deserve to be called for deficit competitiveness,”
