Samuel Eto’o does not « want to have a Kylian Mbappé » in Cameroon


During the National Days of Diasporas and Africa (JNDA), Samuel Eto’o expressed his ambitions for Cameroonian football. He notably mentioned the question of binational players.

On December 11, Samuel Eto’o was elected president of the Cameroon Football Federation. A little over three months after taking office, the African striker spoke at the National Days of Diasporas and Africa (JNDA) to discuss his ambitions.

The training and detection of Cameroonian talent is a major issue in the mandate of the former Barcelona player.

Asked about the issue of binational players, the Cameroonian took the example of Kylian Mbappé to explain the operation he wants to put in place: « I do not want to have a Kylian Mbappé who was born in Bordeaux in our national team but to make Kylian Mbappé who were born in our working-class neighborhoods in Cameroon. Because there are talents in our territories to be valued. »

Cameroon, which organized the CAN last January, will face Algeria on Tuesday (9:30 p.m.) in the return play-off for the 2022 World Cup. The Indomitable Lions lost in the first leg match, one goal to nil.
