Cameroon: Samuel Eto’o To Be Sanction for Corruption within Cameroon Football
The Confederation of African Football is set to investigate legendary Cameroonian footballer, Samuel Eto’o, over alleged improper conduct as president of FECAFOOT.
The former Barcelona player has been under serious pressure from stakeholders of Cameroonian football following his management of the federation.
CAF Official statement:
“CAF has received written statements from several Cameroonian football stakeholders to look into and investigate certain alleged improper conduct by Mr. Samuel Eto’o who is President of the Fédération Camerounaise de Football (“FECAFOOT”)”.
“CAF is looking into these requests based on and by the CAF Statutes and Regulations. Whilst the allegations are prima facie serious, Mr. Samuel Eto’o is presumed to be innocent until an appropriate judicial body concludes otherwise”.
“CAF will make no further announcement while the investigations are ongoing and will only make public statements when the proceedings have come to an end.”
It can be recalled on December 11, 2021, Samuel Eto’o was elected president of FECAFOOT by 43 votes ahead of his close rival, outgoing federation’s president Seidou Mbombo Njoya with 31 votes, according to results of the elections held in the capital, Yaounde.
Samuel Eto’o is a four-time winner of African Player of the Year.
In his prime, he was regarded by pundits as one of the best strikers in the world.
