Alain Nkong was on top of the world last week after scoring the match-winner in Cameroon's 1-0 semifinal win over Ghana in the African Nations Cup.
Now, he may be looking for an attorney.
Nkong was a no-show in Cancun as he was supposed to have reported back to Atlante following the ANC, which for Nkong ended in a 1-0 loss to Egypt on Sunday. Nkong, though, was not heading back to Atlante's first club. The defending Mexican league champs wanted to send Nkong to Leon of the second division but Nkong apparently felt he deserved better.
Atlante filed a complaint against Nkong, according to this story. They've taken some recourse and gotten the FMF involved. Atlante officials, though, said they would be open to talking to Nkong to come to an agreement.
Nkong landed a spot on Atlante before the start of the Apertura 2007 season and helped Atlante win a championship. After he was selected for Cameroon's ANC squad, Atlante dropped Nkong and wanted to ship him to the second division, but Nkong said no and now the club is apparently trying to force its will.
