It would be a bomb if the information is confirmed!

Claude Leroy would have thrown in the towel at the head of the selection of the DR Congo within 24 hours of the start of the African Cup of Nations of football. The countless broken promises by the government of DR Congo on premiums could be the cause of his resignation.

"The French technician gave Theo Binamungu, FECOFA member responsible for national teams, a letter of resignation addressed to the Head of State, President Joseph Kabila. In his letter, he explains not being able, he and his assistant Sebastian Migne, to continue their mission. This position is in response to numerous episodes of disorganization that preceded the arrival in South Africa, which forced him to spend more time dealing with issues of stewardship or visas than the preparation of the team on the field "stated the communiqué.

If the information is confirmed, it would be difficult for the Leopards at a few hours to the start of the competition.
