Samuel Eto’o seem to be the man to rescue cameroon’s hope of seeing their right to host the 2019 AFCON maintained.
Eto’o has been part of the team of the Malagasy CAF President Ahman Ahamad’s entourage since he took power from Cameroon’s own Issa Hayatou.
Recently, Eto’o made the Congo trip to meet CAF’s new president, Ahmad Ahmad, and his first vice-president, Constant Omari.
Samuel is fully committed to convince the Executive Bureau that Cameroon will succeed in organizing one of Africa’s best AFCON in 2019.
Even though the degree of skepticism is high, Eto’o is highly respected by these leaders since they feel that the former Barcelona man had in his time supported change at the head of the African body.
Reports had it that Eto’o was part of the conspiracy to see that the Tombi led FECAFOOT Executive be kicked out.
With Eto’o close to Ahmad Ahmad, Cameroonians are hopeful that the patriotic forward will plead on behalf of Cameroon.
