“Alex Song isn’t even one of the best players in Cameroon”
The argument among Cameroon players Samuel Eto’o and Alex Song has returned after the striker, currently on the cards for the Russian club Anzhi, primarily was unable to hold back when questioned about the revealed bad blood among two of the country’s star names.
“There is no conflict among stars to talk of, due to the fact I’m one of the finest players in the world and Song isn’t even amongst the best in Cameroon, said Eto’o when questioned on the animosity between the two players.”
Eto’o’s argument on French satellite channel ‘Canal Plus’ fanned the fire of an argument that appeared to have been put to bed lately when the duo met at a hotel to take care of their dissimilarities.
Clear-the-air conversations took place in Yaoundé, Cameroon, in advance of the country’s crunch match against Cape Verde, with a spot at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations up for grabs. Nevertheless, fresh off Cameroon’s disappointment to qualify for the competition, the issue reveals no sign of abating.
Without a doubt, the argument, which runs back a long away and revolves around a power struggle inside the national side, appears to be to have flared up once again following Eto’o’s intense remarks.
The issue formerly arrived while in the World Cup in South Africa, leading two camps forming inside the dressing room, with players siding with or in opposition to Eto’o and Song. On that occasion, the Cameroon Football Federation was pressured to step in and duly fined Song €1,500.
