Africa’s football governing body, the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF), has received a formal complaint from stakeholders of Cameroonian football over the conduct of FECAFOOT President/former Barcelona footballer Samuel Eto’o.
Eto’o’s reign as boss of the Cameroonian Football Federation has been controversial, with some members of the association calling for his resignation.
“CAF has received written statements from several Cameroonian football stakeholders to look into and investigate certain alleged improper conduct by Eto’o, President of the Fédération Camerounaise de Football (“FECAFOOT”),” a statement from CAF read.
“CAF is looking into these requests based on and in accordance with the CAF Statutes and Regulations. Whilst the allegations are prima facie serious, Mr. Samuel Eto’o is presumed to be innocent until an appropriate judicial body concludes otherwise.
“CAF will make no further announcement while the investigations are ongoing and will only make public statements when the proceedings have come to an end.”
