Players of Yong Sport Academy have questioned the level of professionalism exhibited by the Cameroon Professional Football League during an exchange with members of the National Syndicate of Cameroonian Footballers –SYNAFOC, led by its National President, former Cameroonian International Geremy Njitap during a working visit at the Mansfield Plaza Hotel, Bamenda Thursday June 15, 2016.

Ngalabe Ndongo, speaking on behalf of many of the players wondered aloud whether players of the league are “machine” when they are made to play without break for months and when they are even given a break like the recent mid season break, it lasted only a week and some of the teams like Yong Sport did not even have the required one week rest as they are fresh from Garoua and are to play in Douala this weekend again. In a melancholic tone, he said, he just like the others have not seen their wives, kids, siblings and love one for several months yet there are expected to perform at the highest level and deliver results.

The players also express concern on the way some club presidents treat them especially with regards to their contracts, payment of salaries, the poor play ground, lack of medical facilities, and the poor treatment meted on them.

Responding to their worries, Geremy Njitap and his team made up of former footballers and legal experts advised the players to first of all be very discipline, cultured and professional in their career to be able to reap the best and reach the summit.  SYNAFOC he said is there to protect their interest visa-vis the clubs and the league and FA.
