Former Inter Milan and Chelsea striker, Samuel Eto’o, has confirmed he will run to become president of the Cameroonian Football Federation (Fecafoot).
The 40-year-old wants to lead his country’s football governing body that has been without a substantive head since 2018.
In a long statement posted on his social media page, Eto’o spoke about his motivation to become president of Fecafoot.
“I am honoured and pleased to announce my candidacy for the Presidency of the Cameroon Football Federation. After careful considerations, I have decided to take this initiative out of love for Cameroon and passion for our football,” Eto’o wrote on Instagram.
“To me, it would be an honour to be at the service of the establishment that has bestowed upon me all the accolades I’ve received so far.
“I stand before you on this special occasion because time is of the essence. Waiting is not an option. It is time to rebuild our football. We can no longer delay the revamping of our number one sport because the rest of the world is moving on; it is progressing without us.”
