Barcelona’s Cameroonian player Alexandre Song is poised to reach a new milestone in his career. After a timid start to his now blooming career with French side Bastia, Arsenal and Catalan giants, F.C. Barcelona, the young Song could join African and Cameroonian football legendom if he wins CAF”s African player of the year award for which he has been nominated in the category for overseas – based players. Alexandre Dimitri Song Billong is the only Cameroonian to have made the top ten list that includes a strong Ivorian contingent with guys like Gervinho, Drogba and last year’s winner Yaya Toure. This reality leaves one wondering if appearing in the list is the best Song can do or does he have the grit to outplay the other nominees. Come December 20, the answer to this question will be known during the annual CAF Award gala that will take place in Ghana. The other nominees are Younes Belhanda (Morocoo – Montpellier), Pierre Eymerick Aubameyang ( Gabon – St. Etienne), André Ayew (Ghana – Olympique Marseille), Mikel Obi (Nigeria – Chelsea), Demba Ba (Senegal – Newcastle), Chris Katongo ( Zambia – Henan Construction). Is something wrong with this list or what? Where Eto’o at? Don’t wanna start a controversy, just asking.

In the category for best African player based on the continent, Cameroon’s Esperance de Tunis striker Yannick N’Djeng  made the cut. The 22 yr old scored 15 goals this season, helping his team to win the Tunisian league title.  The other nominees in this category are from Egypt, Tunisia and Congo – Kinshasa respectively.

After playing spectator for two matches since signing, Alexandre Song finally got the chance to play for his new side F.C Barcelona. This was during the return leg of the Spanish Super Cup. Unfortunately for him, it was not destined to be a dream start as his team sank  2-1 to rivals Real Madrid. He did put up a good display during the 15 minutes he spent on the field after coming in for Sergio Busquets. However, that wasn’t enough to change the tide in their favour. Since trophies were one of the reasons he signed for the club, this defeat must resonate deeply with the player since he was this close to winning a trophy barely two weeks after signing a five-year deal. Courage Mbuom.

Hmmm ! Arsenal midfielder , Alexandre Song has finally revealed why he changed his hairstyle to blonde. In an interview on Arsenal TV, he explained that since  his wife had noticed too many players with dreadlocks on the pitch , she asked him if he could change. He wasted no time to grant the wish of his childhood sweetie by going all blonde.

‘I was at home and my wife told me you need to change because when I watch the games I see so many players with dreadlocks, you just need to change. And I agreed. That’s why I tried something different.

I like it but I want to go straight back to my dreadlocks because that’s me, the dreadlocks, although right now I just want something different.

I am very happy, it’s good to change, I like to do it but again, I just need to go back to my dreadlocks because that’s me, my personality.’

I feel  the new hairstyle has made him more combative  and offensive than before. He scored last week against Manchester United.

Rumours have widely spread that Alexander Song had a brawl with his captain Eto’o and has a misunderstanding with the coach.

According to  the Secretary General of FECAFOOT, “there is no problem of Alexandre Song in the Lions. For the match against Japan, the  coach said  Alexandre Song was not in good physical and psychological condition to give the best of himself. ”

As for the alleged brawl with Eto’o, Tombi Roko Sidiki gave an ambiguous answer: “There has never been any outbursts between the two. There has never been a fight. It is true that the Cameroonians like it when there is chaos. I’m with the team since I arrived. I have not heard raised voices between the two. Now, if people who read the letters in envelopes, I’m not very gifted in this area… Maybe there are little problems between the two, but it is not seen visibly, ”
This release coincides with Agence France Press (AFP) quoting the president of FECAFOOT: “Whatever the problems between the players, I do not think one has wanted to betray the country, not to do his job. ” Iya Mohammed has also added “we do not need to be friends to play football and we do not ask them to go away together on vacation. But assuming that clans actually exist, the team is above personal issues.

It is clear that other factors, including the reprehensible state of mind of the player will not plead for him. It would be recalled that last March, against Italy in Monaco, he openly showed his displeasure at the non-call of his uncle Rigobert Song.

Moreover, his relationships with several national team players was rather strained and his attitude on and off the field is far from perfect. Like when he asks one of his teammates, older than him in national team, to get up from ‘his’ place in the bus.

Surely the football specialists agree on one thing: Alexandre Song Bilong remains a centerpiece of the device of the Indomitable Lions. As proof, his absence against Japan, June 14, at Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein, has left a great void in the midfield. The Cameroonian authorities present in Durban held a working meeting with the technical support. According to sources close to the team, the player at the center of the controversy could begin the match on Saturday against Denmark in Pretoria.

Samuel Eto’o declared on infosport in an interview that he did not have any brawl with this team mate Alex Song.
