Canal 2 international has broadcasted a telephone conversation with the emblematic captain of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, Rigobert Song still interned at the Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital in France. In the news bulletin today, Rigo said he was getting better and better and thanked the Cameroonian people especially President Biya and his wife for their support. “For the moment, I feel good, I’m in full rehabilitation. I am aware of some few things”.
The former international defender has kept his lion’s heart and he shocked the Canal 2 journalist when he reminded him in the conversation that Cameroon was just 24 hours to the kick-off of the 10th edition of the 2016 Women’s Africa Nation’s Cup. “To my sisters, the indomitable Lionesses I convey to them the determination … I wish that everything goes very well,’ Song added.
Rigobert Song suffered a stroke last October the 2nd at his home in Yaoundé. After an emergency treatment in a hospital in Yaoundé, he was evacuated three days later to France on high instruction from the presidency of the republic.
