By formalizing the list of players selected for the 2017 AFCON, the coach of the indomitable Lions invited the media men to respect his choices.
They are therefore known. The 23 will defend the colors of Cameroon at the AFCON “Gabon 2017“. A group in which do not include two deans namely: Aurélien Chedjou and Henri Bedimo. The coach also chose to go without Anatole Ambang.
Hugo Broos formalized his choices during a press conference held on 4 January 2017 in the early evening at the Hotel Mont Febe in Yaounde. The opportunity for the Belgian technician to urge the press not to interfere in his work.
“We can have several discussions about a list of players. Everyone to his preferences. That does not bother me. What I’m asking for is that you respect my choices, “Broos said. “I’m not asking you to agree. But I ask you to play the game correctly, “he added.
This outcome of Broos demonstrates to the point that the coach of the Cameroon team knows that some of his choices will be the subject of criticism within the public opinion. The observers are already wondering what reasons may have led to the sidelining of the experienced Aurélien Chedjou for the benefit of a young player like Mohamed Djetei. Some people also wonder how to explain Henri Bedimo’s sidelining to the lesser-known players like Ernest Mabouka.
In any case, the boss of the technical leadership of the indomitable Lions made his choices and said to assume them. Broos really has no choice, when we know that his goal is to finish at least in 3rd place of the competition.
