Cameroonian Player Jean Claude Billong Reacts To Match-Fixing Accusations Against Him And Vincent Aboubakar. Cameroonian player, Jean Claude Billong, who plays as a defender for Turkish club Hatayspor, has released a public statement reacting to match-fixing accusations against him and Vincent Aboubakar from the Turkish club.
We had earlier reported that the club accused Billong and Aboubakar of plotting to match fix a football match. According to them, Aboubakar convinced Billong to play badly in a match that ended 7 nil in favor of Besiktas or help Besiktas win and in return, Aboubakar was to help Billong be called up to the national team.
In the statement, the accusation is unfounded as he has never and will never encourage, engage or participate in any type of match-fixing or whatever. “I will categorically and robustly defend my integrity and professionalism and I strongly encourage any checks by any independent professional body in Turkey,” Billong adds.
Reacting to allegations that he was called up to the national team after keeping his part of the deal with Aboubakar, Billong says his call up to the team was made substantially before the game in question in written communication and this was as a result of his hard work and dedication on the pitch for Hatayspor and the fans in Turkey only.
