Bayern Munich forward Eric Maxim Choupo Moting, has said he is very excited to be participating in the Africa Cup of Nations taking place in his home country, Cameroon. He said he will put in his best, but not because he absolutely wants to be man of the match.
The 32-year old striker was speaking to the BBC, as the Indomitable Lions heightened training ahead of their opening match against Burkina Faso on Sunday, January 9.
“I’m very excited. It’s been a very long time since we hosted the AFCON. It’s a great tournament especially at home now with our supporters, we’re looking forward to it” Choupo Moting said.
“I might not be the man of the match, but we have a great team performance. I’m not really thinking about me being a star.”
Choupo Moting is one of the key players in the “Lions’ den”. He has assured the public that he will bring in the fine form he has with Bundesliga side Bayern Munich.
