The Karlsruhe midfielder left the Indomitable Lions group before the start of preparation for the CAN.
Franc Kom was not present at the first two training sessions of the indomitable Lions yesterday January 3, 2017. However, the member of Karlsruhe in the German second division is not one of the players who declined the convocation of Hugo Broos.
The former player of the Panther du Ndé would have even arrived the first day of training at the hotel Mont Febe where the Lions are housed. According to information relayed by the press, Kom arrived at the hotel on 2 January at the same time as his teammates. He even spent the night at Mount Febe before returning in the morning.
“The player prefers not to engage with the national selection as long as his club has not received confirmation of his convocation,” we learn. In other words, Karlsruhe would not have been officially seized by Cameroon about the convocation of the Cameroonian international. But, curiously, the former resident of the Étoile sportive du Sahel has nevertheless come in selection.
Another defect among the 35 players preconceived by the coach of the Cameroon team to prepare the Gabonese AFCON (14 January – 5 February 2017). A real headache for Hugo Broos who is expected to publish this Wednesday the list of 23 players selected for the competition.
