The portal ‘Camfoot’ revealed the conversations that exploded in Cameroon like a bomb
Eto’o got into another mess that will cost him dearly. If at the World Cup in Qatar he was in the news for an unfortunate image kicking a cameraman, now go back to be in the center of the target. Some conversations have leaked, in which He leaves seriously compromised by his direct mediation with the referees to favor Victoria United in their promotion to the first division. Eto’o has been president of the Cameroon Football Federation for two years.
In some audio leaked by Cameroonian media ‘Camfoot‘, sparked an unprecedented scandal in the African country. The conversation hints at the good relationship between Eto’o, president of the Federation, and Gwain, president of Victoria United. Eto’o starts by making sure he can do something for his team to influence the referees. “There are things we can do, but you have to be very discreet brotherEto’o begins by telling Gwain: “I haven’t had time to go home yet. I’m out brother. I haven’t had time to go home and work with the president – referring to the president of the Cameroon referees’ association – because I can’t call the referees directly and tell them to be careful. But I can work with the president.”
The story continues and other irregularities of the former Cameroonian player are discovered”.stay calm, we’ll give you the three points and suspend the referee. But let me at least go back to Cameroon. Arrived on 3 at night. So see you at the office on the 4th. Anyway I will ban and disqualify this referee. We’ll see you in the office on the 4th and that’s how I’ll call the chairman of the referees.” Referring to the president of the Cameroonian league, Eto’o reassured Gwain “He has the power. From there, with his commissions, he will also be able to suspend the president of the referees”.
The declarations that commit Eto’o even more are those that ensure the growth of the club and its acceptance. “Our club, l’Opopo (nickname given to Victoria United) They have to go up to the first division, that’s our goal. The three of us will meet (president of the referees and the Cameroonian league) e We’ll talk quietly and sort this out.”
In the last three years of Victoria United they have achieved two promotions, now with these conversations it is doubtful if they have earned it in a sporting way.
