Cameroon FA rejects Eto’o’s resignation as president
Samuel Eto’o tendered his resignation as president of the Cameroon Football Federation on Monday only to have it rejected by its executive committee.
The former Barcelona striker tendered his resignation on Monday after Cameroon’s disappointing AFCON last-16 exit at the hands of Nigeria.
A statement from Fecafoot outlined how their executive “unanimously rejected” Eto’o’s offer of resignation, “thus renewing their confidence in him to continue.
The federation claimed its executive committee convened in Cameroon’s capital, Yaoundé, on Monday to examine the national team’s performance at the Africa Cup of Nations.
The statement reads, “At the end of discussions and subsequent deliberations, the members of the executive committee decided to maintain their current mandates and thus unanimously rejected the president’s resignation thereby renewing their confidence in him to continue with the same spirit of reconstruction and development of Cameroon football at all levels as envisaged in his plan adopted by the elective general assembly of Dec. 11, 2021″.
