Dieumerci Mbokani says goodbye to DR Congo national team

Dynamo Kiev striker Dieumerci Mbokani has decided to retire from international football after he was accused of unprofessional behaviour by the national team chiefs.

The highly rated footballer, currently on loan at Norwich City, narrowly escaped the attack at the Brussels airport as he was supposed to catch a flight to DR Congo.

Mbokani eventually failed to rejoin the national team and was then heavily criticized by the Congolese Football Federation chairman Constant Omari Selemani.

Disappointed by the treatment from the national team bosses, the 30-year-old decided to call time on his international career.

“I have had problems with the Federation all the time. This is the reason why I decided to stop with the national team,” Mbokani was quoted as saying.

“I do not want to play for Congo. I believe I was given unfair treatment. Therefore, after a discussion with my family, my relatives, I decided to stop.”

Mbokani has represented the DR Congo national team since 2006 and he managed no fewer than 16 goals in 31 appearances.
