In an interview granted at the end of December 2017 to Sofoot, the 35-year-old former Cameroon international, severely tackled the leaders of Cameroonian football.
Achille Emana does not want to hear about Indomitable Lions anymore. The player of Mumbai FC in India made it known in the interview he gave to Sofoot on December 27, 2017.
Answering the question on whether he has put a stop to his career in the national team, the Former Toulouse player was unambiguous. “Definitely. I close my eyes to this selection. I do not want to hear about it anymore,”he said.
The midfielder has not been called to the Indomitable Lions since the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. Achille Emana was part of the players banned after the competition following the problems that had rocked the den during the South African stay.
If he has expressed the wish of years after returning to the national team, the former star of FC Sevilla has since resolved to lead his football career away from the Indomitable Lions.
In his opinion, the leaders are the main cause of the faltering health of Cameroonian football. “I will not say it was a waste of time for me, but in any case, a huge disappointment.
There is too much corruption in Cameroonian football, too many people who think they are kings and who are harming our sport. It has always been an honor to be called.
But the leaders need to understand that when you come to play, you leave your club for several days. You have the trip to think.
You arrive in the country and you realize that you have to sleep at the airport. It’s complete rubbish. Some people see selection as their personal heritage and it is not acceptable. I wish to continue to live my life away from all that,” Emana averred.
