When I moved to France, playing for Bastia I thought I had achieved a miracle. However, this was only the start as my journey continued to Arsenal and Barcelona, two of the greatest clubs in the World. So many people have helped me along the way, my wife, my kids, family, friends, my agent, coaches, and of course all my teammates whom I will forever be grateful,” he further said.

“Of course, Charlton, West Ham, Rubin Kazan, Sion, and Arta/Solar 7 will always remain in my heart. Having the honor of representing my country 60 times also filled me with great pride. I feel blessed with so many great memories that will remain with me forever. Lastly, I would like to thank all the fans who have supported me along the way, I will treasure everything.,” he continued.

The former Cameroonian international is said to have won 49 caps for the national team. He played for the Indomitable Lions between 2005 and 2014.
