The Cameroon international has admitted that he didn't actually know where he was moving in an interview with L'Equipe:
"The manager knew my name and had seen me in the Champions League, but did not really know whether I was good or not,".He then went on to talk about how Mark Hughes' training sessions involve no tactics and is basically just them running around and playing football. It sounds pretty fun tbf but probably not conducive to earning points against teams who are far better prepared than they are. Mark Hughes is so over respected at managerial level that the BBC won't even do a newsnight on him
"I thought they were a Scottish club. Marseille needed the money. So I thought why not if it is for their good and mine, but I would never have thought of coming here."
