George Mandjeck should have been in the Cameroon-Germany match, counting for the third day in Group B of the Confederations Cup. But the member of FC Metz in the French Ligue 1 was replaced by Arnaud Djoum a few minutes before the kick-off of the meeting. The reason evoked, an injury. However, Cameroon coach Hugo Broos denies this version in an interview with the Cameroonian media.
“In fact he was not injured, but he just said he will not play. For me it was a big surprise. And a negative surprise because the player had to warn us much earlier. It was not obvious to Arnaud (Djoum, ed) to start because he had not been prepared. Besides, I had a conversation to explain to him that he was going to start on the bench, “said the Belgian technician in Cameroon Tribune.
