Present in Cameroon for a presentation ceremony for CAN 2021 infrastructures, which will be played early next year, El Hadji Diouf confided To Europe 1. After reassuring about the preparation of the country of the Indomitable Lions for the great celebration of African football (« Whether it is the stadiums, training grounds and hospitals, Cameroon is ready »), theformer Lensois and double African Ballon d’Or reviewed the major issues that shake Africa football. Selected words.
The absence of Édouard Mendy of the 30 nominated for the Ballon d’Or
He is the best goalkeeper in the world and he is not part of the selected for the Ballon d’Or while the Italian goalkeeper is in it! It’s scandalous. If Chelsea has changed, it is thanks to two people: Thomas Tuchel and Édouard Mendy.
His choice for the Ballon d’Or
Lionel Messi. It shows you that a person can run a club like Barcelona for years to come. Today he’s gone and you see how they are hurting. I think he’s the best player in history.
The Andy Delort affair
I have a message for Andy Delort: he can stop, it’s his choice. But with such a flamboyant team, it’s not normal. They have a wonderful group that can go far at CAN. For me, the national team is sacred! We even have to give more with our national team than with a club! Because when you stop football and when you return home, you will be a legend for life.
