President of the Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT), Samuel Eto’o has been given a 72-hour ultimatum to make decisions concerning the present Head Coach of the Indomitable Lions.
The ultimatum to decide if Antonio Conceicao should be maintained as the trainer of Cameroon’s national team was given to the FECAFOOT boss, Samuel Eto’o, during a plenary session with Southwest members at the Limbe Marcsons Hotels and Resort.
At a time when many believe the fate of Antonio Conceicao has been concretized by the Minister of Sports, Prof. Narcisse Kombi, new developments about the head coach keep many aback.
Bearing in mind that Cameroon’s football decisions should be taken by professionals and not politicians, the FECAFOOT committee believes the Cameroonian soccer icon, Samuel Eto’o could make a better decision on the coach to guard the Indomitable Lions to compete with the Desert Foxes of Algeria to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.
Although Antonio Conceicao attempted to win the just rounded off AFCON 2021 and took the Lions to grab the third position, many believe a national, and not an expatriate would be the best scout for the country’s national team.
Many sentimental comments about the coach and his management flooded the social media for what many considered as blunders; such as letting goal pusher and deputy captain of the team, Choupo Moting, make only two appearances in the entire 7 games of the Indomitable Lions in the AFCON tournament.
The 40-year-old expatriate was also criticised for neglecting and making lope changes argued to have disfavoured Abubakar Vincent and teammates.
Many are wondering what the decision of the FECAFOOT boss will be.
Will the revolutionary Samuel Eto’o Fils make a decision contrary to Sports and Physical Education Minister, Prof. Narcisse Kombi?
