With Cameroon lifting the African Cup of Nations in this year’s tournament, their head coach Hugo Broos was clearly being the bigger man when he criticised those players who didn’t want to play.

Of course in trying to be the bigger man he looks a bit of a fool – especially as Cameroon came to an agreement with the likes of Allan Nyom then curiously still continued to send through the paperwork for them to return to club action until FIFA stepped in.

Anyway, I won’t quote Broos – I’ll lead with what Nyom told the BBC as the 28 year old responded to his words.

‘Let him know that I don’t have any regrets. I heard what Broos said. It made me laugh because he knew what happened and he knew why I was not there. It’s true, at first I didn’t want to go, but afterwards I changed my mind. But he knew that and he knows what he told me, so I have no worries, no regrets.’

He added.

‘If before the tournament they had told me ‘Cameroon is going to win and you are not part of the squad’, I don’t mind because I’m happy I’m playing for my club – it’s much more important for me. If I had been there, it could stall my club career.’
