    "When you are authentic, no need to switch to the other side"- Assou Ekotto blasts Mbappé, Umtiti, Batum and other Africans playing in European teams!

    France winning the world cup opened up conversations about Africans playing for European National teams, especially the French National team with several Africans claiming that France won because of the African players in the French National team.

    Umtiti defended his stance for playing for France, just as Mbappé had earlier done.
    Former indomitable Lion; Assou Ekotto, had openly rebuked Africans who played for foreign countries instead of their home countries. This has led to a Twitter war between him and Mbappé earlier this year. Read about it all HERE.

    Assou Ekotto himself is the product of a Cameroonian man and a French woman. He was born in France, but he chose to play for Cameroon regardless, because of the love he has for his country.

    Two days ago, he took to his social media to  reaffirm his stance on the whole 'Africans playing for foreign countries issue.' He shared old pictures showing him playing for the Cameroonian National team at a very young age, with a text that read:

    "camer dans le coeur depuis petit ❣ one luv for #africa national team #abuja #nigeria 16 years a go....quand tu es authentique pas besoin de retourne ta veste un jour ou l’autre..."

    Which is translated as "Cameroon has been in my heart since from my childhood 16 years ago. When you are authentic, no need to switch to the other side"
    Assou Ekotto 16 years ago in the Cameroon National team
    Assou Ekotto was 18 years old at this time, already playing for the Indomitable Lions

    He is definitely throwing jabs at all the Cameroonians who played for foreign countries during this world cup:
    Kylian Mbappé (France)
    Samuel Umtiti (France)
    Jean François Moubandje(Switzerland),
    Breel Embolo(Switzerland),
    Yvon Landry Mvogo(Switzerland).
