Rigobert Song on Zambo Anguissa and Michel Ngadeu:
“They don’t necessarily need to be there. We know already that they are leaders in this team. We need them to rest sufficiently. Zambo and Ngadeu need rest and it is to our advantage that they return in November in full fitness. We know already that they are in the team even though they’re not called up.”
He even went further to call Anguissa a leader and will be looking forward to having him at full fitness come November
On Fabrice Ondoa and Carlos Kameni
“We have an eye on Fabrice Ondoa and Carlos Kameni. André Onana is the number one, but the door remains open.”
As for Choupo-Moting, it is believed that his lack of game time at club level has is becoming a worry and hence resulting to him being dropped.
