The four players are, two defenders, Burinyuy Derrick, Boung Joel Ondoa and two Midfielders, Mbah Louiz and Ndeh Collins.
“Ndeh Collins, helped me so much in building unity within the players, together with Burinyuy Derrick, Mbah Louiz and Boung Joel. They helped me so much, because we had indiscipline cases , where some players refused to pay what we call solidarity. They hide it from me, and only told me at the end of the season. If they told me at the beginning, I could have send them away. so the four of them were wise and tried to manage it within them and that’s what we call team spirit”, said Pagou.
He added ” I don’t wish to liberate any player, but we’re obliged to, because we had indiscipline cases and unjustified absences. So Boung, Ndeh Collins, Burinyuy Derrick, and Mbah Louiz thanks so much for the work you did for me, that’s I could sleep quietly and the reason why I handed most of the team’s work to the four of them. That’s how a team has to function. If we continue like that, we will surprise people”.
The four players in question played an incredible role for PWD both on and off the pitch.
