Striking Cameroon players offered extra Africa Cup bonus
The players on Thursday refused to board a plane bound for the continent’s showpiece biennial tournament in Egypt.
After that refusal, Kombi presided over an overnight meeting with some senior players and their representatives after which the Cameroonian football federation (Fecafoot) agreed on an additional bonus of 7,600 euros per player.
Each player had already received a payment of 30,489 euros from the government.
“We hope that the players who asked to be heard will accept to set off in the day,” a source close to the sports ministry told AFP.
Cameroon kicks off their campaign against Guinea-Bissau on Tuesday, with Ghana and Benin making up Group F.
