Cameroon Goalkeeper Ondoa, ‘Coach Right to Criticize Cameroon FA’

Spain-based net-minder Joseph Fabrice Ondoa Ebogo has backed Indomitable Lions’ coach Hugo Broos saying he’s right to speak up against the Cameroon FA.

The Africa Cup of Nations-winning gaffer last month launched a stinging attack on the Cameroon FA, blasting it for being unprofessional.

The indomitable Lions were nearly left stranded after it emerged that hotel bills and food for the players weren’t paid for on time which the Belgian tactician blames for his team’s friendly loss to Guinea Conakry.

And 21-year-old Sevilla’s reserve goalkeeper Ondoa has leapt to his coach’s defense describing the Cameroon FA as always being dogged by problems of poor preparation.

“He was right to speak. The coach is calm and a patient person but that was too much,” the former Barcelona goalkeeper said.

“There are people who work well within the federation and others who do it very badly”

Labeling the incident shameful, Ondoa recalled how he and rest of the team went to have their meals few hours before the Guinea game only to be told bills haven’t been paid by the Cameroon Football Association.

Switching his focus on the hectic schedule of the Indomitable Lions, Fabrice remains buoyed saying the players delivered in the Gabon finals when no one had faith in them.

[perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]“We will take six points against Nigeria, in August and September. You know, we won the CAN when nobody betted on us.[/perfectpullquote]

“Cameroonians have extraordinary mental strength. Before that CAN, we had done well” he told Jeune Afrique.

Ondoa’s club future lies in the balance with the Gabon Afcon best goalkeeper award winner growing frustrated over his lack of playing time in Sevilla’s reserve team.

As a result, the net-minder is now pondering seeking minutes elsewhere with Belgium, England or France – his preferred destination.
