Former Indomitable Lion midfielder, Jean II Makoun says he “wanted to take up the challenge” after he was ‘willing to give-it-a-shot’ to DR Congo’s TP Mazembe.

The 36-year-old who has played for over six top European clubs said he has not ruled out the possibility of representing an African or Cameroonian club before retirement.

“My dream is to play again in Africa. For now the virus is everyone’s worry, signing for a club is not my priority. Before the outbreak of the pandemic TP Mazembe came calling and I was willing to give-it-a-shot but the virus put everything on a hold”: Makoun told in an exclusive interview in April.

The former Aston Villa and Antalyaspor anchor midfielder is presently in Cameroon and believes it is time to make a decision about his career.

Earlier in April, the Yaounde born native distant himself from social media reports linking him to Cameroon’s top tier side Feutcheu FC of Njiko Bandjoun noting he had “no contact and contract” within the division one side.

TP Mazembe are the second most successful football club in Africa with five CAF Champions League titles.

The Lubumbashi based club are also the most successful club in the Democratic Republic of Congo with 35 titles.
