Abandoned in Brussels after playing with Cameroon, beaten in friendly match by Guinea (2-1), the club ranked ninth of MLS in Conference East took charge of paying the return flight of its left wing player. The Cameroonian joined his teammates on Thursday.
Ambroise Oyongo is finally in Montreal. The Cameroon international defender joined his team-mates on Thursday. Abandoned in Brussels after a rally with the national team, Impact Montreal leaders were forced to fly to the rescue of their player whose booking of the return ticket had not been ensured by The Cameroonian officials. The club ranked ninth in Master League Soccer (MLS) in the Eastern Conference paid the flight of its left-winger. A key player in the Canadian team, his leaders did not want him to miss the trip to Chicago Fire on Saturday.
Oyongo, always forgotten
This is not the first time that Ambrose Oyongo is abandoned, after a regrouping with the Indomitable Lions. The last episode dates back to last February. Back in Yaoundé with the trophy of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON), the Indomitable Lion had been forced to pay from his pocket, his plane ticket to Montreal. That was exactly the 17th of February. In the entourage of the player, one is outraged at the way in which the officials of the national selection and Cameroonian football have returned the situation, making Ambroise Oyongo the man to be knocked down.
Who is responsible?
According to the coordination of the national selections, measures had been taken so that the player returned to his club on 29 March by a flight departing from Brussels by Air Canada at 10.45 am. According to the information, Ambroise Oyongo was scheduled to arrive in Montreal at 7:30 am the next day. But the latter would have decided himself to stay one more day in Brussels, preferring to travel on March 30 “in the afternoon to arrive in Montreal in the middle of the day,” one learns. This, however, can not be true; Because departures from the only flights scheduled by Air Canada on March 29 and 30 from Brussels National Airport were at the same time, 10:45 am to 12:15. Ambroise Oyongo could not therefore travel in the afternoon.
Even if he had asked for the coordination of the national selections that his flight was deprogrammed and pushed back to 30 March, is it not legitimate? Does a player have the right to ask for a change in his flight title? The answer is obvious. In this case, why did the flight title of Ambroise Oyongo not change?
