Cameroon’s Football Association has elected Eto’o as its president

On Saturday, Cameroon soccer legend Samuel Eto’o was chosen president of the country’s football federation (FECAFOOT), a month before the African Cup of Nations.

Former Barcelona, Inter Milan, and Chelsea striker Eto’o will take over a club that has been plagued by infighting, mismanagement, and corruption claims for years.

Fifa, soccer’s world governing body, has interfered on multiple occasions to put an end to FECAFOOT officials’ fighting.

With 43 votes from FECAFOOT’s general assembly, Eto’o, 40, won the election. Seydou Mbombouo Njoya, the current president, earned 31 votes against him.

From January 9 to February 6, Cameroon will host the Africa Cup of Nations. Because of delays in preparation and security concerns, it was denied the opportunity to host the event in 2019.
