The ex-footballer of Barcelona and Inter is charged with various sins – from embezzlement of funds to organizing match fixing
Cameroon Football League issued an open letter in which she called on the FIFA President Gianni Infantino and the head of the African Football Confederation Patrice Motsepe suspend Samuel Eto’o from the post of president Cameroon Football Federation.
The league is asking higher football authorities to act “with the same speed and firmness” that they demonstrated in the situation with the dismissal of ex-president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation Luis Rubiales.
The letter summarizes all the illegal actions that, from the point of view of its compilers, were committed by the famous ex-football player of Barcelona, Inter and a number of other clubs. These include corruption, match-fixing, and theft of funds.
Samuel Eto’o, 42, has served as president of his country’s football federation since December 2021.
During the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Samuel hit a YouTube blogger who asked him a provocative question about bribing the referee of the match between Cameroon and Algeria in the qualification of the mentioned World Cup. The Algerian federation unsuccessfully lodged a complaint with FIFA demanding a replay. Eto’o subsequently apologized for the assault.
With the connivance of the president of its football federation, the Cameroon national team is going to play with the Russian national team in Moscow on October 12. Eto’o himself is also going to the capital of the aggressor state. Let us remind you that Samuel took part in a charity match in early August Game4Ukraine in support of Ukraine, which is suffering from the actions of a terrorist country.
