“The coverage is completely tinged with racism. We played our Euro’s across 10 countries in the middle of a pandemic, there’s no issue. But, Cameroon, a single country, hosting a tournament is a problem.”

“There are players getting asked if they will be honouring the call-ups to their national teams. Imagine if that was an England player representing the Three Lions. Can you imagine the furore?”
