Eto’o to appeal CAF sanctions


Samuel Eto’o Fils’ lawyer, Florian Mbayen, has revealed that the Fecafoot President shall appeal the verdict of CAF’s Disciplinary Committee that found him guilty of violating the ethics of the African Football Governing body by signing a personal contract with a bĀ£tting company.

Eto’o was asked to pay the sum of USD 200, 000 but the former Barca player now says CAF is not competent to judge him based on ethical considerations.

This is tricky for Eto’o because he risks not being able to table his candidacy for upcoming elections at Fecafoot or elsewhere because of the CAF ruling.

Every presidential candidate must not have been found ethically wanting ( guilty) for any elections in all football federations worldwide.

CAF had earlier cleared Eto’o Fils of match-fixing for nonsubstantial evidence. The African football governing body also cleared Victoria United president, Nkwain Valentine of the same accusations.

A day before CAF’s decision, former Fecafoot Executives and some stakeholders petitioned CFA an
d FIFA demanding that Eto’o be banned for life.
