Cameroon boycott training over bonus row

Cameroon national football team boycotted training session on Monday ahead of their semi-finals tie against Ghana due to bonus issues.

Cameroon defeated the Taranga Lions of Senegal 5-4 on penalties, after 120 minutes of football had  ended without a goal.

Reports from the camp indicate that Hugo Broos’ men are demanding 12 million CFA francs per player as a qualification bonus for the quarterfinals and semifinals respectively.

The government had offered the players 10 million CFA francs per player after the initial plan of less than 4million CFA francs an amount that squad captain Benjamin Moukandjo and his team mates termed as unacceptable and have demanded for full payment of their winning bonuses before they would return to the field.
