Cameroon: Jean II Makoun Savours Holiday at Home

After several months of work, the Cameroonian international footballer Jean II Makoun has taken some time off to be with his family and friends. He lives in England and plays in Aston Villa Club.

His holidays in Cameroon began in May 2012 and will end in December. For the past two months, he has not stopped practising sports for, he says, it is already a part of him. He does sports every morning except on weekends. He regularly visits gymnasiums to keep his muscles in shape and jogs regularly on the slopes of Mont Febe and nearby "Parcours Vita". During weekends, he plays football on various pitches in the Nkolndongo and Nlongkak neighbourhoods.

After sporting activities, he spends the rest of his time with his five children, relatives and friends. He finds pleasure in accompanying his children to football clubs where they learn to play as part of their holiday activities. He usually visits his parents who live in the Etoa-Meki neighbourhood. For him, holiday is a very good moment because it permits him to spend time with his family after a long period of absence. It also permits him to meet his childhood friends with whom he plays cards; an old time habit. The football icon is a major attraction at the Nkolndongo neighbourhood where he lives.
