On a TV program broadcast on SFR sport on Thursday 22 June, the former coach of the Indomitable Lions at the AfCON 2000 in Ghana was questioned about the lively controversy between Bernard Tchoutang and Samuel Eto’o.
“Joseph Désiré Job was average on his first games, Eto’o walked on water at each training. The decision came from me and not from the marabout. Samuel Eto’o deserved be the titular he became.
I even made a statement to say he was the best striker in the world and I was not wrong, “said Pierre Lechantre.
“On this shot Eto’o is right. One must be wary of Bernard Tchoutang who’s not serious. He was an entertainer on the field, “added Pierre Le Chantre with humor.
