The lead trainer of the Indomitable Lions of António Conceição Da Silva Oliviera has lifted the lead on the situation of French-based AS Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni.
Reacting to questions about the work done so far to bring Cameroon-eligible players with multiple options on which national selection to represent, the gaffer was quick to point out successes and failures so far, while questioning Tchouameni’s desire to come.
“Today if we have Harold Moukoudi and Yvan Neyou, it’s because serious work is being done. Unfortunately, sometimes it doesn’t require communication when it is still a process,” coach Conceição stated.
20-year old super sweeper Moukoudi of AS Saint Etienne and his Club colleague Neyou gave their okay to join the Cameroon team in the Conceição-era. Though 25-year old Neyou is yet to report to camp due to other reasons, Moukoudi has been a mainstay missing just two games under the trainer.
Further elucidating on the situation Monaco’s 20-year sensational midfielder, Conceição told the media it’s been some sort of long fruitless walk.
“We have been talking to Aurelien for two years, yesterday he played for France’s youth team. I don’t believe we should invade the French camp and try to pull him out. We want players with love and respect for our values here. We don’t want players to come at Gunpoint,” the gaffer explained vis-a-vis Aurelien Tchouameni who has played 24 games and scored twice for French side AS Monaco this season.
Tchouameni is of Cameroon descent but owns French birthright making him eligible for both nations at senior category though he looks set to represent France as he has honored the country’s youth team’s invitation but never done so for Cameroon.
