Samuel Eto’o Fils, former glory of the Indomitable Lions and current president of the Cameroon Football Federation (Fecafoot), sent a message to the African legends who are emerging in the governing bodies of African football.
On December 11, Samuel Eto’o was elected head of Fecafoot after his first campaign in the presidential election. And since then, the Indomitable Lions have climbed to the podium during the CAN in Cameroon, before snatching a qualification for the 2022 World Cup a few weeks after the appointment of Rigobert Song as coach.
A very promising debut from the former Barca and Inter Milan striker that inspires other footballing legends. We think in particular of the former Chelsea striker, Didier Drogba, who applied for the presidency of the Ivorian Football Federation. An initiative encouraged by Samuel Eto’o.
“A new dynamic has been set in motion and the prospects are very interesting. If all goes well, Didier will take the plunge. In Mali, I think something is taking place with Seydou and Frédéric. In Ghana, in Egypt, in Algeria, the elders are committed to moving the lines. We must assume our responsibilities and create a favorable environment for the development of football. If we fail, we will be vilified by future generations. », triumphantly declared Samuel Eto’o.
