Alexander Song reveals the disorder found in the Indomitable lions team when they went in for the 2010 World Cup.

The former Cameroonian international football player returned to the setbacks of the South African world during a “live session” on Instagram.

The Coronavirus pandemic has shut down football championships worldwide. Like the rest of ordinary people, footballers are confined to their homes while waiting for the disease to be eradicated. To pass time, many of them regularly take social media by storm to tell about their daily lives in confinement, but also some anecdotes about their club or national team careers.

Two days ago, Alexandre Song did this exercise. During a conversation with one of his relatives, simultaneously broadcast on Instagram, the former midfielder of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon dwelled at length on the disorder that reigned within the den of Lions , during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

According to the former Arsenal Gunners player in England, the main instigator of this cacophony was a player he introduced as “Bantu”. However, according to small information slipped here and there during this discussion, we realized that it was Samuel Eto’o, captain of the national team, during the South African World Cup.

“(…) We take the list [second game against Denmark] we give the Bantu to go and deliver to the Minister… after, apparently, during the night, the Bantu sent a message to the Minister to tell him that Rigo [Rigobert Song] do not play, I do not play, such does not play. I don’t know what happened there, but I started the next day, “said the 2008 runner-up.

“But the Bantu said he was racing for the 2010 Ballon d’Or and he wanted to surround himself with the best to make a good World Cup and finish at least on the podium,” adds the interlocutor of Alexandre Song. And to the former FC Barcelona player to answer “At the time it was just to go up that it was me who decided”.
