By Mohamed Fajah Barrie in Douala

Defender Steven Caulker left Douala on Friday night to rejoin his Turkish club Gaziantep after his country failed to cross the group of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

The former Liverpool and Tottenham player said he would make brief stop over in London before heading for Turkey.

He featured in all three Leone Stars’ group games against Algeria, Ivory Coast and Equatorial Guinea respectively.

The 30-year-old central back was impressive in all the matches and was even named in the Afcon best XI for the first round of matches.

A few other players left Douala too on Friday night, and they’re Sullay KaiKai, Idriss Kanu, Kevin Wright, David Sesay, Issa Kallon and Osman Kakay.

The rest of the team, and supporters are expected to depart Douala on Saturday.
