Eto'o suspended following FECAFOOT hearing decision
December 14, 2011
Cameroon's national football federation, FECAFOOT, recently came to a decision concerning disciplinary actions for Indomitable Lions captain Samuel Eto'o. A disciplinary hearing earlier this week found that the kicker was responsible for inciting his team's boycott of the exhibition game against Algeria's team, according to Ahram Online.
"Eto'o confided to some officials his resentment towards the minister of sports and the president of FECAFOOT for contacting the prime minister demanding to change the captaincy," the statement from the meeting read, according to the news source.
As punishment, Eto'o is suspended from the next seven games. However, he is expected to make a defense statement in the next few days.
The federation accused Eto'o of playing a role in the failure to distribute bonuses to the team, which they claim were offered to him to be distributed to the other players.
People who are following the football drama can make calls to Cameroon to find out the latest news as it happens.
