Queens Park Rangers transfer target Daniel Cousin has been advised to return home by Hull City boss Phil Brown.
Safety concerns have arisen in Angola following an incident involving Togo players, where two were wounded and the team bus driver was killed.
The African Cup of Nations has since been thrown into serious doubt, with many high profile managers calling on their players to pull out of the tournament.
Hull City manager Phil Brown has two players at the tournament – Nigerian Seyi Olofinjana and Gabon international and prospective QPR front-man Daniel Cousin.
Speaking to The Sun, Brown expressed his deep concerns at the welfare of his players.
‘I am appalled,’ he said.
‘This throws a question mark against next summer’s World Cup. You simply cannot put the safety of players, officials and fans at the slightest risk. That is totally unacceptable.
‘I have two players – Daniel Cousin and Seyi Olofinjana – on duty and I want them back home here with us as quickly as possible.’
Cousin remains poised to sign for Queens Park Rangers following the completion of his role in the tournment – as was revealed on Wednesday.
