DR Congo Players Walk Out On National Team Citing Poor Organization
Four DR Congo players left the National Team camp protesting against poor organization. Arthur Masuaku (West Ham United), Paul-Jose Mpoku (Standard Liege), Jordan Ikoko (Guingamp), and Gael Kakuta (Amiens) left the camp due to repeated logistical and organizational issues that happened as the team traveled to Dar-es-Salaam for a friendly against Tanzania. Long flight delays, lack of training facilities, poor quality accommodation are some of the concerns that were raised by players.
“They all lamented the organizational aspects of the camp and are frustrated,” Jerry Angengwa (Media officer) said.
The remaining players stayed to play the game under the condition that the Federation promises to improve arrangements for their international games. The match ended 2-0 in favor of Tanzania.
