Allan Nyom

Unlucky Nyom has no Afcon regrets



West Brom's Allan Nyom insists he has no regrets after Cameroon won Afcon 2017 without him.

Previously a key member of the side, the player had snubbed an initial callup from coach Hugo Broos. And then when he had a change of heart, he claims the coach told him to stay away.

The Indomitable Lions then went on to stun their countryfolk and the rest of Africa with a run that has lead to a fifth Afcon title.

"Let him (Broos) know that I don't have any regrets," Nyom told BBC World Football.

"I heard what Broos said. It made me laugh because he knew what happened and he knew why I was not there. It's true, at first I didn't want to go, but afterwards I changed my mind. But he knew that and he knows what he told me, so I have no worries, no regrets."

"If before the tournament they had told me 'Cameroon is going to win and you are not part of the squad', I don't mind because I'm happy I'm playing for my club - it's much more important for me."

"If I had been there, it could stall my club career."
