why Samuel Eto’o was in Reims on Sunday

Samuel Eto’o, president of the Cameroonian football federation, was seen in the bays of the Stade de France on Saturday for the final of the Coupe de France as well as Sunday afternoon at the Auguste-Delaune stadium, for the meeting between Reims and Lens.

Very involved in his mission, Samuel Eto’o has been hailed since the beginning of his mandate for his great presence on the ground, particularly across Cameroon. But the former Barcelona player is currently on a European tour to meet Cameroonian players scattered across the various championships.
