Going through the comments on the previous post of 15000 Africans footballers being moved under uncertainty, every participant brought out different reasons why these players fall victim: Lack of media involvement, lack of professional training, infrastructural deficiency, low pay package, conflict of interest, lack of sponsors, lack of patriotism.
In a survey carried out , Cameroon footballers both in the diaspora and home stood to identify the main problem with Cameroon football. The most alarming of all was infrastructure. Every footballer wants to see the pride of the game he plays to entertain and enrich others: The play environment. At least if the money is not in the pocket let the pride and integrity be there. We are going to take a look at the play grounds of some encounters between Elite 1 clubs.
|UMS Loum Winner of 2015 Cameroon Cup home fish pond field|
|2014 Winners of Cameron and Cameroons representative in African championship Cotton Sport de Garoua vs Racing|
|African Championship Winners, Canon de Yaounde and Union de Douala battling it|
|2014/2015 Cameroon cup finalist Panther Vs Fouvu de Baham playing a league match on an unidentified pitch in the West|
|Ngoundere untraced Municipal stadium|
|Training ground for 86years old Canon de Yaounde|
|Bamenda Municipal stadium, supposed home field for YOSA|
|Home ground for Panther de Nde 2009 winners of Cameroon Cup and 2 times runner up|
How do we expect these players to be satisfied, stay home and became local champions when their game has no pride, no environmental safety, no respect and above all no money?
This is the time to make your voices heard people. You are the change you need.
