"He's a great character. As great a player as Johan Cruyff. His game is fluid, intelligent, his acceleration electrifying."
Claude Le Roy, former Cameroon coach

Even when he's sitting down he's playing. He spots problems and when he gets on the pitch he works like the coach - organising, adjusting positions. After games I simply shake him by the hand and say 'Thank you'. I believe he has some kind of computer in his head and knows what to do in any situation. We give him no specific task. We just ask him to play according to Roger Milla."
Valeri Nepomniachi, Cameroon coach at Italy 1990
