Samuel Eto’o, the former captain of the indomitable Lions of Cameroon has reacted to the scandal that has rocked the national football team in Brussels. Eto’o made his opinion public on Thursday stating that the recent affair in Belgium falls in line with what he had all along been criticizing in the management of Cameroon football.
The French Cameroun football legend said that history has finally vindicated him because he often suffered the wrath of the leaders of the Cameroonian Football Federation when he happened to denounce the bad organization of the national team.
Eto’o’s misfortunes began in November 2011 after the LG Cup tournament in Marrakech. For claiming the payment of bonuses and forcing his teammates to refuse to play a friendly against Algeria, he was suspended for 15 matches before the sentence was reduced to eight months.
As a reminder, the Lions of Cameroon were blocked in a hotel in the Belgian capital, Brussels. The players were refused food before a friendly against Guinea Conakry due to unpaid bills.
