The release of documents containing information about recent match bonuses paid out to the Cameroon senior national football team, has been vehemently criticized by FECAFOOT.
In a communique signed by the Secretary General of the Cameroon football governing body, the action taken by the Sports Ministry is said to have violated the privacy of the players as well as the confidentiality of the financial documents.
“The Cameroon Football Federation FECAFOOT, discovered with consternation, the publication on social media, of the documents containing information of the payment of bonuses of the last 2022 Qatar World Cup Qualification match.
“These documents were initially and exclusively addressed to the Ministry in charge of sports, under terms of confidentiality with the objective of ensuring transparency,” an excerpt of the statement from FECAFOOT indicated.
Details revealing that the Lions and staff had recently received a total of about 530 million FCFA as match bonuses, emerged online days ago, sparking controversy among Cameroonians.
Many considered the amount to be exorbitant.
