A communiqué signed by 18 players of Bamboutos FC, Cameroon’s most popular league one side as per fan base, has the lads threatening to pull out of the upcoming games due to unpaid salaries.
The letter addressed to the administration, currently circulating on social media has as content: “we the players of Bamboutos FC have come via this medium to tell you of our problems currently affecting our performances on the pitch.”Bamboutos of Mbouda started the season as favourites and thrilled the fans with good football in the first round, but the club is now shadow of themselves after having gone five matches without a victory.
“In effect, we wish to demand our two months of unpaid salaries because as the head of our families, we need to get some basic requirements to satisfy our family members.”
“We would not be taking part in subsequent match days if our situation is not regularised. We count on your perfect understanding,” the letter read.
18 regular players including: Rene Ndi, Mark O’Ojong, Pange Lobe, Arouna Dang, Medjo Aristide Tchouassi Steeves Pagnol, Etame Ngombe, Ako Harry and a queue of others put pen to paper to confirm their active parts in the letter.
A sum of 294 Millions Francs was given to league one and two clubs before the start of the season, plus an additional 96 million Francs, as subvention for the clubs to buy equipment. Just recently, the Technical Transitional Committee added to that figure so the second round of the Leagues could continue due to strike actions from the syndicate of club Presidents. Bamboutos FC of Mbouda hits the road to play rejuvenated Edind FC on Wednesday, if all and sundry are sorted.
