Former Newcastle United and Portsmouth striker Lomana LuaLua has called time on his international career with Congo DR.
"When you don't do well, people start asking questions and sending messages, disrespecting," he told BBC Sport.
"I love my country, but if I knew it was going to be like this, I would have rather stayed at my club. I'm finished, done. I've reached a level. For me, I think this is it, I've completely stopped."
LuaLua currently plays his club football with Turkish side Karabukspor.
