Samuel Eto’o summoned to CAF Investigation panel amid allegations of favouritism

Samuel Eto’o, the President of Cameroon Football (FECAFOOT), is facing further scrutiny as he has been called to appear before the investigation panel of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).

The former Indomitable Lion has been summoned to Cairo, Egypt, on Wednesday, April 17, to address allegations of favouritism towards certain local teams.

Specifically, Eto’o is expected to respond to concerns regarding the promotion of Victoria United to the first division during the 2022-2023 season, a decision that has sparked controversy following the emergence of an audio recording on social media.

In the recording, Eto’o is purported to have influenced Victoria United’s elevation to the top tier of Cameroonian football, leading to widespread debate and scrutiny.

Notably, Eto’o has expressed frustration with CAF’s handling of the investigation, criticizing the organization for not allowing him to present his side of the story before initiating the inquiry.

Furthermore, Eto’o’s tensions with the Sports Ministry persist, particularly regarding the appointment of Marc Brys as the coach of the Indomitable Lions.

As Eto’o prepares to face the CAF investigation panel, the football community awaits further developments in this unfolding saga, which could have significant implications for the administration of football in Cameroon and Eto’o’s role within FECAFOOT.
