    Former Indomitable Lion; Idrissou Mohamadou, drowning in financial difficulty!

    Former Indomitable Lion; Idrissou Mohamadou seems to be in financial difficulty.

    The Cameroonian footballer now plays in an Austrian 3rd Division Club and earns about 350,000 CFA francs per month.

    The former Bundesliga star; Idrissou Mohamadou, recently granted an interview with German Magazine; Bild, where he reappeared after disappearing from the radar of the football world since his departure from Germany.

    The former Cameroonian international is indeed in a modest third division club in Austria, FC Kufstein. A sign of the decadence of  Idrissou, who was at the peak, playing with the Indomitable Lions during the FIFA Confederations Cup in 2003 where they emerged in second place.

    At 38, things don't seem too bright for the former player of Racing Bafoussam and Cotton sport Garoua.

    He was formerly ranked among the best players in the German league thanks to his 34 goals scored in 2011 in Kaiserslautern. Now, Mohamadou Idrissou plays before an audience of an average of 300 spectators.

    He told German Magazine; Bild, that bad career choices are what caused his downfall.

    "I lived a wrong life for years. I was very wrong, but I was often duped,"- said the striker, whose contract in Austria runs until the winter break in December.

    He also mentioned issues with women, multiple payments of child support, unauthorized vacation extensions, death threats against his ex-girlfriends that have resulted in restraining orders, bodily injury and a long list of scandals.
    As a direct consequence, Idrissou's finances suffered. Idrissou who was driving in a Porsche Panamera, now goes to his training sessions on foot.

    In addition, his monthly salary is just 540 euros(353,000 CFA francs.)

    Despite these financial difficulties, Idrissou still has sporting ambitions. The center forward promises to score a goal in each of the 28 days of the Austrian 3rd division championship. He is on the right track, with a current total of 5 goals in 6 games played.
