The Executive Committee of the Cameroon Football Federation has asked CAF to withdraw its communique which portrays the management of the Cameroon football governing body by Samuel Eto’o as “bad”.
Members of the executive committee unanimously declared their support for the FECAFOOT president during a meeting on Friday, August 11, in which they condemned CAF’s statement on Eto’o’s conduct as head of FECAFOOT.
“CAF has received written statements from several Cameroonian football stakeholders to look into and investigate certain alleged improper conduct by Mr. Samuel Eto’o” the Confederation of African Football wrote on its website on Wednesday, August 9.
The statement has been considered tarnishing to the image of the four-time African footballer of the year, as well as to the Cameroon Football Federation. The FECAFOOT executive committee members asked CAF to exercise more caution when examining complaints of such nature.
The members pointed out that FECAFOOT has a structure which has to be consulted first, in such situations.
Eto’o’s mandate which is already halfway gone, has so far been a tumultuous one. The FA president has been accused of dictatorship, match-fixing, embezzlement and abuse of confidence among other faults.
